New Fabrics……Part Two

I have now uploaded the remaining fabrics that were delivered last month before the Festival of Quilts.

Firstly, there is a great Japanese collection from Robert Kaufman, The Imperial Collection. This features a fantastic full fabric width print with some great co-ordinates. I have made one of my wall hanging quilts using this full width fabric and will upload a picture of this shortly, but in the meantime here is a picture of the print in question.


The second new collection on the website is Nuance by Paula Nadelstern for Benartex. This collection features Paula’s fantastic kaleidoscopes and coordinating designs. There is a panel print again, similar to the mega marble print from the Opulence collection and a great texture print called Sunstone.


Advent calendars prints should be arriving in the shop any day now and the next delivery of fabrics should be from Timeless Treasures next month.

New Fabrics…..Part One

I have just uploaded some of the new fabrics that were delivered last month.

Firstly, as this year’s Quiltette Challenge has just ended the fabrics are now available to buy separately. The fabrics were from the Island Sanctuary collection from Robert Kaufman.


The challenge has resulted in some wonderful entries as usual and they will be judged shortly.

The second collection new on the site is Elementals, also from Kaufman. These fabrics are a wonderful striped batik collection by Artisan Batiks. As usual I have a great idea for a simple quilt using the stripes to make it look more clever than it is!


I have two more collections to upload so watch his space!

Ferret’s New Book

I have just taken delivery of Ferret’s new book, Ferreting Around – A Contemporary Sampler Quilt.


I’m trying to have a quick read in between serving customers and it is very good. There are 96 pages with colour pictures and diagrams and excellent instructions. I think it will prove to be a great book for new quilters anxious to learn many of the techniques in quilting.

The price is £15.99 and each copy I have in stock has been signed by Ferret herself.
