Pheasants Galore

Yes folks, the Pheasants are back!  We love this stunning reproduction chintz from Margo Krager's Pheasants & Traceries collection.  We sold all we had in July but were able to reorder and took delivery of another couple of bolts this week.  The print is approx 12" high and wide and lends itself equally well to a blocks, broderie perse, or borders. 
Pheasants & Traceries $25.50m
Megan's newest work in progress features the irky gold, teal and pink print (although she has a handy amount of both colourways in her cupboard at home!).  Both  are equally beautiful and versatile. To gi9ve you some idea of how each works with a mix of colours and prints, here are a few we grabbed to show you and hopefully inspire you to incorporate a bit of this amazing chintz reproduction into your stash.

Also new this week is a gorgeous border print from Paula Barnes' Red Rose and Vines collection.  It's quite an orangey red with tan and black print and would make a fantastic frame around a special quilt.

Threadbear's Passionate Piecers met last Saturday and were treated to a special trunk show from Margaret Hall who shared with us some of her beautiful antique pieced quilts collected mostly from America over the past 30 years.  Thanks again Margaret for your generosity and the inspiration. Here's a handful of Margaret's quilts to wet your appetite.

This week Sam is counting down the sleeps until his B I R T H D A Y ~ next week he turns nine!  Sammy is expecting loads and loads of birthday wishes and presents, and treats, and pats and treats, and attention and treats.  Loads of them.  So he figures the more he naps this week the sooner his birthday bonanza will begin.  Stay tuned for the Big Birthday Wrap next week, and have a great weekend everyone!
