We have been busy this week getting ready for CraftExpo. It is always a lot of fun to take to unpack the shop into a stand.

If you can come and visit us at stand B21 - We would love to see you!

Judy has made some lovely quilts to showcase the pre-cut and they have been selling like hotcakes!

This is Patches of Spring. It uses the Spring Fever Jely Roll and is so pretty!

During our recent sale, we had a Grandmother, Mum and a daughter (4) visit. The daughter chosen an Eden Charm pack to make a quilt. The Grandmother told me how her granddaughter would sit on her lap while she sewed. I was so inspired by this story that I designed the quilt Oh so Easy quilt - with help from my four year old Thomas.

He chose the Odyssea charm pack with it cute fish and shells. This quilt has no matching seams so it doesn't matter how accurate your seams are (or those of your helper). Kids can help at whatever level they are. Thomas wanted to match the duplicates in the pack and sat on my lap while I sewed. He is very proud of the quilt.
