If I've been a bit quiet recently its because I have been UBER busy cutting, packing, wrapping and stuffing.
For the last 3 weeks its been non stop preparation to take QuiltMeHappy to the the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham 16th -19th August.
We will be on stand N22 so do come and visit.
Getting ready has been very tiring. I completely underestimatated how much time it would take to get ready plus a few late orders for quilting delayed my progress but today the car is loaded and tomorrow I will be on my way. Woo hoo!
I have all sorts of new and lovely things to show you too.
A Parson Gray ZigZag quilt
This took 16 FQ and some groovy green linen for backing.
The Original Parson Gray Target Quilt : Made up!
This s a dead easy quilt to make ONCE you have the templates drawn out!
I hate enlarging patterns so I have made up a kit with FULL size pattern pieces.
So all you have to do is open the bag, cut and sew!
I adore this quilt! Its sooooooo easy to make too. The blocks are actually on a panel and available with cream or black sashing but its wonky sashing. If you can live with wonky thats great all you need do it add a border and quilt. But if you are like me and wonky drives you crazy then cut the blcoks out and resew - straight!
Fabric kit available with
Kona Snow sashing
Uranicity Border and
Alexander Henry Cite backing
or hows about this lovely Kokka fabric grocery bag.
Little Red Riding Hood!

this lovely Amelia Dress pattern and kit by BRAND NEW DESIGNER
The Amelia Dress Sewing Pattern is a great versatile garment.
The shirring on the bodice allows the garment to grow with the child, it can be worn as a sundress or layered over a long-sleeved top and when your little girl grows it can become a tunic top teamed with leggings. The pattern is sized for 6-12 months to 4-5 Years.
Emma - the designer/sewer behind new brand MummyLovesLily uses amazing Pat Bravo fabrics and we will have a the dress pattern and fabric available as a kit. She has very kindly dropped off 6 dresses for me to take to Festival too - and these will be available for sale ... just in case you dont want to sew a dress yourself. The pattern for this dress is AMAZING though. She adds so much detail to them.
