Busy Times continued!

Wow is all I can say about Chilford last weekend! Very busy, especially the first couple of days. I showcased the Nuance quilt for the first time and luckily took the fabric bolts with me as it inspired a lot of you!

Kaleidoscope Quilt

It is such a simple quilt with various borders surrounding the centre Kaleidoscope panel and is single bed-sized. Kits are available for £34.95 and can be made in the rust colours shown here as well as a slate and plum colour way. The kaleidoscope panel is also available in turquoise/purple and purple/olive. The kit will be available on the website shortly.

The Ceylon wall hanging quilt is also available now, made using fabrics from the Ceylon collection from Hoffman. It measures approx. 45” by 47”.

Ceylon Quilt

Again this is a very simple quilt which makes full use of the fabrics. The brown and plum colours are available now and the blue should be ready next week. The price is £25.

I returned from Chilford to a big delivery of Robert Kaufman fabrics. The new Imperial Collection formed the bulk of the delivery but there were also some more Sevenberry fabrics; I am stocking the pink/blue colour as well now, and some Alice in Wonderland fabrics. All will be up on the website as soon as I can photograph them but of course are in the shop now.

And the really exciting news is that I will be going to Spring Quilt Market in Minneapolis in May where I can see and buy all the latest products released in the quilting industry. I can’t wait as this is the first time I have been able to go since our move in 2008……mind you there is the matter of Uttoxeter, OEQC in the Netherlands and Quilts UK in Malvern first!……like i said busy busy busy!!!!!!!!!!!!
