New patterns will appear regularly as and when I take delivery of new fabrics. The quilts will usually be straight forward and suitable for beginners upwards. I like to get the fabric to do the hard work for you to make a quilt look more difficult than it is!
Visit the website at to see whats available now.
New fabrics I have just uploaded include the Wave collection from Fabri- Quilt and Gilded Opulence from Benartex.
The Wave is a very versatile collection that can be used very simply in the Breaking Waves quilt as seen in one of last month's postings but can also be used to great effect in small scale piecing.
Gilded Opulence is a second Opulence collection by Paula Nadelstern but this time has the richness of gold added to it. The symmetrical nature of the fabrics lend themselves to lots of piecing possiblities.
I have just returned from the Scottish Quilt Championships. The next show is the European Championships in Waalre, Holland during half term week. I always fly to this event as there is a direct flight from Stansted to Eindhoven and the airport is only about 20 minutes drive away from the venue so if you fancy visiting a show with a difference.....see you there!

This is where you can now find out all the latest news, products and happenings at The Crafty Quilter. I run a web-based quilt shop in England and also travel to quilt shows around the UK and northern Europe. Ordering is very easy through my easy-to-use secure website.
I have just returned from the Festival of Quilts at the NEC in Birmingham which is probably the biggest quilt show in Europe now with hundreds of quilts, loads of quilt shops and THOUSANDS of visitors. If you haven't visited the show yet then you have really missed something so make a note of next year's dates; 14-17th August.
As is usual after being at a show I return home full of inspiration .... if only I sold time as well....................
Well I'm going to sign off for now but please keep checking back to view all the latest news
