New Quilting Fabric

I love this design, it's called 'Winter's Lane" by Kate & Birdie Paper Co. This is their debut line for Moda. It is a wonderland of icy blues, berry reds, and charcoal greys. Inspired by wintery branches, snow covered forests and woodland critters. This cozy collection creates a warm, nature inspired palette perfect for snowy days. The colours work really well with greys, browns, reds and light aqua. 

"Winter's Lane"

I'm attending a local quilting class next month and I'm really looking forward to starting a new project. I'll definitely be using this collection, why wouldn't I, it's gorgeous :) My quilt will be ready for Autumn/Winter and will look great in my new front room!!

If you're thinking of starting a project for the colder seasons, take a look at the Fabric designs I have available. I've added some more Fat Quarter Bundles on my Etsy site. Baby Jane has some really bold colours for the summer but also has a Christmas feel to it with the red twisted stripes.

For some Quilting Projects and Inspiration there's some brilliant books out there. I love Nicki Trench's  "A Passion for Quilting" & "Sunday Morning Quilts" by Amanda Jean Nyberg. Happy Quilting x

Pom Pom's & Yo Yo's

My new stock has arrived. Not only did I receive some Essential Dots Fabric but  also these great Pom Pom Makers and Yo Yo's. I bought myself a Pom Pom Maker at the Knitting & Stitching Show last year and I just couldn't stop making them. I think they all remind us of our childhood. I've recently made some more to decorate the front of my table at Craft Events. They can be used for decoration around the home, knitted hats, clothing and brooches. The possibilities are endless!!

I also stock Flower and Heart Yo Yo's, these are sometimes known as "Suffolk Puffs". You stitch around the guided edges and pull the thread so it gathers, this creates the shape. I've added some of the Hearts to my string of Pom Pom's. They'd make lovely brooches and can be used for decorating bags.

These are available to purchase from my Etsy store. Pom Pom Makers are £5.99 (plus P&P) and the Yo Yo's are £4.50 (plus P&P). I hope you have as much fun with these as I did x x
