With the calendar now flipped over to September, spring is in the air with the promise of warmer days ahead. While I do like the cooler weather and long nights for stitching, I reach a point where my bones feel frozen and I long for the warmth of the sun's rays.
Please check out my newest pattern, Maggie Maguire's Garden. The quilt features 168 fussy cut hexagon flowers, set around a centre appliqué of birds and flowers. It is made by hand using the English Paper Piecing method. I have some fresh starter packs made up, 40 x 10 inch squares of great fussy cutting prints.
On Saturday 5th October 2019 the shop will be closed as I have organised a coach trip to attend the Leukaemia Foundation Fundraising event at Blackburn, Vic. The event includes a quilt display from the Secret Sewing Sisters, Jen Kingwell as guest speaker, silent auctions of all things fabric and quilting, demonstrations, raffles and a lovely afternoon tea. The Coach will start in Warrnambool, pick up in Terang, Camperdown, Colac and Waurn Ponds. We will attend the event and then stop at the Waurn Ponds Hotel for an evening meal on the way home. We aim to be back in Warrnambool around 10-10.30 pm. You can book your ticket here, or call me on 0427 819105 for more details.
