This is the softest, prettiest collection of 1800s fabrics that I have seen in a long time.. I just had to buy them all..
I can imagine a frock straight out of "Little Women" in each and every one of these prints.
Available by the metre or in fat quarter and fat eighth packs.

Each participant has their own copy of the book, and made the quilt in strips that could quilted and joined in the quilt-as-you-go style.
We can't wait to see more of the participants' finished quilts. Thank you Sally.
Merry Christmas everyone!

Lesley used the Surf City fabric to make a quilt incorporating her son's love of surfing and fishing.
She printed fabrics onto the Inkjet fabric that goes through your printer, and is then soft and washable -perfect to incorporate into quilts.

It was intuition alright. Linda has really found her zone in applique... (I imagine that she chose applique for the same reason some people HAVE to try waterskiing, and it turns out they are naturally good at it, just like Linda and applique). The first few blocks were quite tame.. now Linda is doing a LOT of fussy-cutting to place the flowers and leaves on printed fabrics from her stash.

The colours are minty fresh! - so striking.. the black stitches really stand out on the fresh almost-white numbers.

Dee made her centrepiece using the Wintergraphix II range of fabrics.
She learnt fussy-cutting techniques to place the poinsettias and the pine cones. What a stunning table-centre this will be.
Rosemary made hers using fabric from her stash.... but this was a week ago.. and she has already made another one for a present!!
Marion used Sherry Berry Holiday fabrics... Her fussy cutting is beautifully executed (i.e. nice and fussy). I couldn't resist photographing her fingers in this pose... aren't they cute?

Sandi's fabrics are also favoured by the Australian designer of the Make It Perfect clothing patterns. They would be gorgeous to make bags, quilts and of course softies such as the Melly and Me patterns.
I especially like this last one pictured here - it reminds me of the pattern on a daggy lunchbox, but it would make a great skirt!
