We are loving the cooler autumn weather this week here in Castlemaine.  The leaves are starting to turn and the mornings are cool and dewy.  Perfect weather we think to turn our minds to new quilting projects and replenishing our stash.  Our friendly delivery man was right on cue yesterday when he walked through the doors with 3 boxes of Trinkets by Kathy Hall for Andover Fabrics.  This gorgeous collection of basics are perfect to blend with so many reproduction prints. But they also stand alone with some subtle prints and stunning colours.  You'll find some light beige and dirty creams, yellow, red. some double pinks, a few purples, some excellent blacks, some different blues and drop dead gorgeous greens and teals.  Something for everyone. 
#1 Trinkets $25.50 metre

#2  Trinkets $25.50 metre

#3  Trinkets $25.50 metre

We are gradually filling our classes for this year.  But the good news is there are still a couple of places left in Cloverdale with Di Ford-Hall Saturday 25 June 10am-3pm. 
From Di's first fabulous fabric range, Cloverdale House, you can make this gorgeous quilt.  The circular centre is created using broderie perse and hexagons, surrounded by more broderie perse appliqué, then finished with triangles and a border of the stunning pillar print. We have plenty of Cloverdale House still in stock, so you can  easily recreate Di's quilt. The Class fee is $95 and is payable on booking ~ just phone us at the shop on 0354721881.

Speaking of classes ~ we always enjoy seeing finished quilts that were started in a Threadbear class and here is a beauty from Meagan who came to a Margaret MacDonald class with her mum Marg on Mothers' Day 2014. Congratulations Meagan on finishing it off and also Marg (we saw yours a little while ago ).  It's always satisfying to see a newly completed quilt on your bed!

The Pattern & a Starter pack for Vintage Grace by Megan Carroll is now available in the shop and on our website. It's looking great hanging next to The Mary Stubbs Quilt.

Sam is in charge this weekend with Kurt while we enjoy some sewing time. Have a great weekend everyone!
