You may have noticed that I have had a little break from this blog, trialling Instagram which feeds over to Facebook. Did you know you can click on the Facebook link over there on the left hand side and you can view my page, even if you are not a member of Facebook? I really like Instagram, and I am enjoying the speed and ease of posting, so please keep an eye on my pages for more regular updates than here on the blog. But I have actually missed blogging as well, so I am back and plan to post more frequently.
So what have I been up to?
I have now released my latest pattern, Twilight.
I love quilts that have multiple elements, and hidden surprises and I have included them in Twilight. Have you noticed the interlocking circles? Or what about the stars hidden in the crosses? My daughter suggested the name Twilight, which I think fits perfectly. Full moons, stars and the golden pink tones with the greys of nightfall. The pattern includes acrylic templates which makes piecing the blocks very easy. It is available for sale by clicking here, and I have full kits available here.
Milly my Gammill, is providing lots of enjoyment and I'm loving working with different fabric palettes.
I've also started working on 'Daurmont', a BOM which will available for the upcoming Australasian Quilt Convention. The quilt is designed by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings, and uses wool appliqué on cotton backgrounds. I have dyed a number of wools, which has also been fun.....a little nerve-racking at times, not quite knowing what will come out at the end.
It has been a rather large process, cutting all the pieces of wool before I can start piecing my version together.
While I have been absent some great new fabrics have arrived in the shop. Di Ford-Hall's Key West and Bally Hall. Both beautiful ranges that are very popular. Jo Morton's Reflections, and just this week a selection of Jan Patek's new range Coral Bells.
I will endeavour to enter these on the website over the weekend.
It is nice to be back, have a great weekend and happy stitching.
