Down to Business....

Its been quite a hectic few weeks......what with getting ready for Quilts UK in Malvern, working at the show itself and then babysitting my nephews for a will be nice to get down to some home-based work for a bit!
I am hoping to catch up all on the website stuff that needs to be uploaded:
  • the Willow collection from McKenna Ryan has been selling well at the last couple of shows. The fabrics will be featured in the next issue of Fabrications
  • the 21 new King Tut threads
  • a new wall hanging kit for the Flower Mart collection which proved popular at Quilts UK

Quilts UK at Malvern was as busy as ever, despite the changeable weather. The trade show in America, Quilt Market, was held over the same weekend in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvannia so I will be ordering new fabrics that were released at the show shortly.

I'm working on the next block of the month program just now which will be ready for the Festival of Quilts at the NEC in Birmingham in August. I'm very excited about it....the pattern will make a great quilt!
