How special is that???

Simone is a slave to English paper piecing. Totally addicted.

She came along to UFO classes with quite a number of projects that were almost finished. This quilt features fabric from her Nan's stash. I have identified some of the fabrics as genuine pieces of 1930s fabric. How special???

This quilt is now totally complete! Quilted by Wilma at Deep Creek Quilting.

Thanks for sharing Simone. You can join us to obtain help on your project. See UFO classes on the class list at the side.

Yes, you can do that!

When this customer came in to look for fabric to make into a bag as a gift for a friend, she never dreamed we would help her to mix together William Morris fabric with Kaffe Fasset prints!!
It's just another example, of "Yes, you can".
We love choosing fabric - there are just so many possibilities!!

Show and tell

Kellee comes to our beginners quilting classes.

Look who stowed away in her bag!!

As a collective of crafting women, I am always amazed at what we can make while actively learning another craft. So many people are talented in scrapbooking, crochet, knitting, dressmaking.... it is such a pleasure to see people grow in the area of quiltmaking too.

Thanks for sharing your show and tell.
