Quiltette Challenge Results

The entries for this year's challenge have just been judged and I have posted the results to the website There were six entries this year and joint winners were Annie Harris from Southampton and Herma de Ruiter from the Netherlands.
I already have the fabric in stock for next year's challenge and will be uploading the fabrics to the website hopefully next month so you all have plenty of time to make some exciting entries for me!
I have just realised its nearly the end of September and I had forgotten to make the swatch sheet for you to download the fabrics that were delivered in August. Things have been a bit hectic this last month or so what with my relocation but I have now uploaded August pdf file for you to download that month's fabric samples.
I should be getting another fabric delivery in the next few weeks and then its off to Houston Quilt Market to order some is so hard!!

New Fabrics

I have just made the peacock feather prints that were used for this year's Quiltette Challenge available for sale by the metre on the website now that the closing date for the challenge has passed.

The challenge quilts will be judged shortly and the results posted to the website as usual.

As you can see from the fabric picture above I am now photographing the fabrics alongside a tape measure so you can get a better idea of the size of a print. I hope this proves useful to you all.

The first quilt show of the Autumn will be upon us soon, the Scottish Quilt Championships in Edinburgh. I won't be able to make it to the show in person this year but my mother at The Contented Cat will be working hard for me as usual!!

More fabrics should be ready for shipping from the US in the next few weeks and next month I am off to Houston for the weekend to visit the trade show which is held each year the week before Festival to order some goodies!
