FOCUS ON: Baker's Dozen - By Jen Kingwell

Lot's of our customer's have been waiting for this one, and we are very happy to say that Baker's Dozen is finally a pattern for purchase.

You may have seen this project in Today's Quilter Magazine as a block of the month, but it has now been released as one booklet with all the information necessary to recreate this gorgeous quilt.

Fuchsia and chartreuse come together to brighten up this almost autumnal colour palette.

Jen's scrappy style really sings in a cleverly curated colour story, and her use of brown gives the colour a new lease on life.

We feel a lot in the shop that brown is frowned upon...but we love it!
We reckon brown is cool!

We can hear you all now.

"Hand or Machine?"

This pattern is written for machine piecing. There are some templates so not all rotary cut, but it is all machine pieced.

Baker's Dozen has a modern feel to it and we reckon that it is a good one for the blokes - it's straight lines and teal tones give it a masculine edge but it still maintains it's traditional quilt aesthetic with it's medallion style.

You can purchase your copy of Baker'z Dozen now via our website - here.

And, although this quilt would look great in any colour palette, if you're really loving what Jen's looks like... we have put together some Baker's Dozen Starter Kits.

They each have 48 different fabrics in them for you to use - a beautiful mix of Liberty, Alexander Henry, Kei, Kaffe Fassett, Anna Mara, etc, etc.

These first lot of kits are 99.99% original fabrics (yup... we have been hoarding these for months just for you guys!)

You can grab one of these babies from our website - here...
And, our kits include a complimentary copy of the pattern.

NOT TO MENTION... we are still offering free shipping within Australia and half price shipping to all international destinations.

You might be mad not to....

Got the book not so good the color pictures are few and not bright. Not enough diagrams and just plain instructions and very over priced. The pictures on the blog are brighter then any in the book. Again I am so disappointed in another purchase from this designer. I guess it is the way it is down under.

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 1

A fair while ago, when working through the Delilah patterns I thought "yeah... I might just make this".
After a quick brain storm with the Boss Lady/Mum, I decided why not! But it has to be different, we thought because we have no use for 2 quilts that look very similar. So, what could I do? That's when my eyes landed on my always growing stash of Liberty.
March arrived and so did our stock of templates, and off I went...
My, my, my Delilah.

You have brought me to a few firsts so I think some confessions need to me made.

1. I have never pieced a curve.

Nope...  No sir! Not one.
Curves have always scared me. I could never wrap my head around them but the Boss Lady...

She loves them!

I mean... she really LOVES them!

Or maybe she just loves cruel and unusual punishment like this block?!
Just an idea.

Curves conquered.
But wait, there's more (confessions and curves!)

2.  I don't* own an iron.

Ha. Yup!
I managed to get to a few days shy of 30 years old without…

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 3

Hello friends,
Half way into this quilt and with every stitch I fall more and more in love. With each block completed, I drag all my blocks out again and lay them out. I posted this image recently on Instagram (@lucycarsonkingwell) of my 'Design Floor' to gauge where it's all heading and it's looking okay!!

Delilah has been a test - I have learnt many new skills and it is definitely the most technical quilt I have taken on to date... but it's not hard! The templates are fantastic. I swear working with acrylic templates makes it quite challenging to go back to temp-plastic! These templates are ensuring my blocks come out correct, every time.
Month 5 brought us North Star. "Woo hoo. Straight lines!" I hear the masses cheer as they open their mail!
I knew it was time to start focusing on other colours other than pink and aqua. I tend to gravitate towards these two colours because they seem to go with everything to me... especially in the Liberty of London f…

A little eye candy

A very lovely, Susan, e-mailed us her version of JKD Green Tea and Sweet Beans.

We love it!
She made it at a shop in USA called Sewing Party. Amazing!
