One of the things we have noticed in our new home is that we have a lot of fabric and with more always on the way we decided to do something about that...so...Starting tomorrow, 1 April we are having a spot the dot sale! We've been putting color spots of fabrics throughout the shop. Each dot means a sale price from 10-50% off. Of course we also have our regular $10 bargains that are great for backings. It is a great time to pick up specials for backings or to get sorted for the holidays coming up...particularly now as the weather is turning to perfect quilting weather. To start it off we have the best savings at the moment on our "reproduction" section! YES, we have a reproduction section but you might find some surprises in there...
Hey Tina...check out Meg learning to cut fabric!!!
In the classroom people have been very busy concentrating on new projects. Check out what is going on in Wendy Wilson's Liberated Quilting class. In this class we look to the marvelous Gwen Marston and use her Collaborative Quilting book series as the text. In there you'll find wonky blocks, wobbly people and wildly fun ideas to make into quilts like these gals are doing!
See the quilters. See them sew. Everyone looks so serious at this particular moment but from upstairs all I could hear was laughing!
I am starting a little collection of finished Kaffe workshop quilts. Here we have Denise with her bundle of sunshive version. This is a very happy looking quilt!
It would appear that Meegan is hiding behind this but it is also a glorious example of the excitement that can be created with fabric. Careful choices in pairs have made this a stunning quilt. It also looks great with my chair.
Robyn finely tuned her quilt. The mixture of fabrics creates a completely different kind of look with fabrics coming in from left field a bit to excite the eye.
These are three of many but isn't it fascinating to see the completely different effect they all have? I know I go on about it all the time but it is a warm and fuzzy feeling to see people making choices that they are happy with in the end. All three of these makers thought carefully about what they were seeing while they were making their combinations. The end result in each case is a wonderfully composed individual piece.
And last but not least in my hodge podge post...check out my new dress (and if you must read my mind I think at this stage I was thinking...concentrate...concentrate...try to remember what you are doing and think before you speak for a change!) I picked up at Sit & Sew this past weekend. I have the card and info here somewhere! Must have more dresses in wonderful Kaffe fabrics so I'll find that and get back to you.
That is the morning post today. Must get moving. If you are interested in the sale and not in Sydney email me! k
