Busy Times Ahead!

Its busy busy busy at the moment; what with the quilt show in Edinburgh last weekend and in 10 days time it is the show at Chilford Halls near Cambridge.

The fabrics from the oriental collection, Twelve Moons, has sold really well at the shows this year and yesterday I had a delivery of some new fabrics that are going to prove to be just as popular. The Disney Dreams collection designed by Thomas Kinkade has panels featuring Peter Pan and Tinkerbell, Pinoochio and Snow White.

I have lots of exciting fabrics coming in the next few months, including a new Oriental Collection from Robert Kaufman that will make another great panel quilt kit like the one below.

The Sevenberry fabrics continue to sell well, in fact hardly a day goes by without some being sold in the shop! I also have lots of fantastic kids prints on order.

And talking of kids, I have just started this year’s block of the month programme. It makes a single bed size quilt and is really cute and has been great fun to make. You can sign up on the website or visit the shop to pick up details.

I have also been busy designing new quick quilts for you to make using fabrics from the Nuance  and Ceylon collections. Pics to follow shortly.

The other news is that the show in Trentham Gardens the week after Easter has had to be moved to Uttoxeter Racecourse Conference Centre as the pavilion it is usually housed in collapsed under the weight of snow last week and it can’t be guaranteed to be up and running in time for the show.
