Eastwood Quilters, Quilt show 2011

Here I am again getting ready for a wonderful weekend at the Eastwood Quilters bi annual show. This wonderful group of quilters really knows how to host a quilt show. Their diversity of quilting is just geat and very inspirational.
The event will open on Friday the 10th March until the 13th March 2011 in the wonderful venue of Brush Farm at 19 Lawson St Eastwood.

Just to make the event even better ADMISSION IS FREE. There will be donation boxes available for you to make a gold coin donation if you wish.


Petite Projects

Hi and welcome,

"Lilac Hill" from Brannock and  Patek for Moda fabrics has just arrived and is so lovely. Oh what to make with them? I am thinking of something small and cute. The cream base fabric in the range has already proved popular for background fabric in a hexagon quilt. With the hint of the pale green pattern in the background I always find these fabrics interesting to apply applique too.

Petite Projects.
 Petite Projects is a new size of pattern I have added for your selection. These are smaller projects that are more easily achieved in a shorter period of time and will include items from needlebooks and cushions to small quilts....something for everyone. They will be packaged as a small size pattern packet but will contain full size instructions and pattens sheets. The only thing small about these patterns is the price!

Here are the first of two new patterns in the Petite Projects range.

The new little cot quilt "Cherry Fizz" is now complete and the pattern available. Measuring 36" x 42" this quilt is achievable for the beginner. I have used fresh Kaffe prints for little girls but this quilt lends itself for boys fabrics also.This is a smaller format quilt pattern and retails for just $5.50. The fabric kit for this quilt is available upon request and retails for $40.

The pretty cushion "Zoe" is now also available for $5.50 and is a perfect project if you are looking for a pretty present or just something to make during a quiet weekend. Both of these patterns are now available on the website.
