Quilt Tops for Sale

I’ve just listed some retired quilt tops for sale on eBay. These are quilts I have made to display fabrics or kits that have now all gone so the poor quilt tops are now redundant and being a hand quilter I don’t usually have the time to quilt these samples before the fabrics sell out…………

 003   004   006 

They are all on auction style listings so grab yourself a bargain!

I have also listed a floral panel that was in the sale as I have quite a few left still and tried out listing it with a variation listing which is quite cool.

Must try that again sometime, although probably not for the 100+ different King Tut colours. Think I will just stick to the shade card images for those!

Its a busy few weeks coming up with the sale at Nantwich tomorrow, Ardingly Quilt Festival next weekend and then the traders day at Quiltfest in Llangollen two weeks after that.

And so it begins………..

Last Sunday saw the manic start to the first shows of the year that is the sale at Farnham Maltings. It often feels like a school reunion as the traders get together for the first time since the autumn and we all do our catching up before the doors open………….because once the doors open, its CUT CUT CUT until the afternoon! Its a win win situation for everyone; customers get great fabrics at great prices and the shops get to clear fabrics that have been maybe sitting on the shelves longer than they should have been.

I had a little helper for the first time this year.

He had everything he needed under there and is quite happy in his den! He’s actually getting big and strong enough to be a help now with the loading and unloading which is his favourite bit!

This Sunday sees the sale continuing at Nantwich Civic Hall. Check my facebook page for details of how to get there.

The following weekend sees the start of the Ardingly Spring Quilt Festival. Due to party commitments, I won’t be there until the Sunday but all my fabrics and threads will be there from Friday!

The 4th gen Bali Pops are back in stock again just in time for the shows and I have a thread order winging its way over in record time from Superior Threads so will have a full compliment of King Tut threads as well as their new Monopoly thread AND  the assortment packs of the titanium machine needles.

Last Few Days……….

There are just under two days left of the online sale. Lots of lovely fabrics still available for you to grab yourself a bargain.
I had made myself a makeshift cutting table in the conservatory and have kept the sale fabrics at the house as it was easier to do the cutting at home.
I have often had one helper with me sitting on the corner  of the table…….but today I had both of them!


Once the sale ends online on Saturday at noon, I’ll be busy packing the car and making my way down to Farnham for the One Day Fabric Sale at The Maltings. Check out the events page of the website or even better my facebook page for more details as this has a map of how to find the venue!

January is a busy month as the week after we have the second One Day Fabric Sale in Nantwich followed by the first quilt show proper of the year, the Ardingly Quilt Festival.

I should have some more fabrics arriving later this month but already on their way are MORE Bali Pops, so if your favourite colour sold out first time around they will be back in stock next week!
