Sharing your show and tell

Meet Bernie the little dog. Isn't he cute? Made by one of our anonymous young customers... heh heh If you would like to make this little dog, click here to purchase the Fido pattern by Melly and Me.

This is Linda with her Aussie jelly roll quilt. The jelly roll as a Christmas present from her son last year. Linda loves the colours in her finished quilt - the first one she has kept for herself.

Thanks for sharing Linda and anonymous. ;)

Only the best...

We've picked the best from the new French General fabric range La Petite Ecole.

The colours are very similar to those of French General's first range Rounneries.

Lots of designers published patterns using the Rounneries range, (which sold out long ago). This fabric will give you a similar look.

Vintage, classy and affordable. Only $20 per metre!!

Also available in jelly rolls, layer cakes and fat quarter and fat eighth packs.

These colours are perfect for both modern and vintage homes. I know you will love them as much as I do!!

1800s reproduction fabrics suit this quilt perfectly. Note the intensity of the colour increasing from the centre to the outside of the quilt.

Learn how to machine quilt

Maylene has been learning to machine quilt during our Friday night UFO sessions (click the link to class list on the right side bar for more information).
She is quilting up a storm, and actually finishing lots of quilts. This is a close-up to show you the free-motion swirls quilted in a variegated Signature thread.

Swirls are the perfect complement to the linear geometric pieced quilt.

Thanks for the show and tell Maylene. We all look forward to seeing more of your finished quilts!!
