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…

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!


Well, no. Not really! It’s more the truth about Amitie.

We never write on this blog. We want to but it’s always at the bottom of the very long to do list and it gets bumped. Bumped to the next day, next week (maybe even next year going by the last post… eeek!)

So why now? Why this post? We keep hearing things on the quilty grapevine. Things we mostly laugh at amongst ourselves because they’re so silly. But, recently there’s been a few that have made me think that some of these rumours could be a little damaging to our little fabric store so I using this platform to set the record straight.

Never been on the cards.
How this started I do not know. Maybe because the building we are housed in sold, which is the truth but the little rumour that followed is just gossip. We will be moving ag…
