More Yummy Pre-cuts & a Giveaway

Yes another delicious box of goodies arrived today. Firstly it has four more Rural Jardin layer cakes and 4 more Jelly Rolls. Wow this stuff sold out so fast. If you still want one then don't delay! There was also some more yardage as so much has disappeared already.

Also in it were more Hunky Dory Layer Cakes and Jelly Rolls - another collection that disappeared before the yardage release.
Finally we have also got in the latest reproduction range Charity. Reproductions are so lovely.
I do so love the pre-cuts and have decided to give away a lovely charm pack of fabrics from the Mary Rose Collection. To go in this give-away, just leave a comment tell us you favourite charm pack project. The more inspirational comment wins the pack! We'll post the winner at the end of the month!

Getting into the quilting

Well the quilt tops have been piling up here. We've cleaned off the quilting machine and started to get them done. Judy had first go today finishing of this great design that she whipped up DURING the CraftExpo last month.

It is made from a Simple Abundance layer cake. Anyway it's a bit of a tease now because it is on the machine but it is really fun and I'll post again when it is bound.

Taking English Paper Piecing to the Next Dimension

Chris and I am having a lovely weekend enjoying our English paper piecing. Chris has started on her first English paper piecing project - Playing with paper pack 6.

I have been working on one of Sue's latest patterns - Sewing Assistants. This is a really cute English paper piecing pattern that pops into this cute shape as you work - English paper piecing in 3D. It comes together so quickly with the Sewline glue pen!

Sewing Assistant
has really a really cute star on one size and a nice rounded top on the other side.

I'm addicted now - I've stared on A Star is Born.
