Rainbow Florals HUGE 20pc stash pack

 Just a quick post!

This is the first time listing of this huge stash pack of 20 fabrics with no duplicates!
The previous bundle sold out on day2- so be quick as I only have 2 of these.
They are a GREAT buy and can't be repeated.
The colours are vibrant and cover the whole rainbow.
This would make an AWSOME quilt!

Quilted Hair bands

Hi Everyone,

I have finally got around to taking some pics of the hairbands that I have been making  which will be new kits in the store soon.
I use cotton towelling for the batting as I want them to be useful as cool bands in summer and towelling hold water well and is comfortable and not sweaty.

 So far I have 4 variations of the pattern and I am thinking of offering kits for one and three headbands. Each kit will be one of a kind as I am using the strip left over from the fabrics once I have cut them into squares. These strips are between 1.5-2" and work wonderfully for hairbands. Plus I have a patchwork version using 2.5" squares.

The kits will include everything you need to make them including fabric, backing fabric, floss, thread, cotton toweling batting and elastic.

Once I have made up the pattern I will post a version of it for free on the blog as I intend to do for my cushions also.
This one uses 3 strips of tye dye fabric and some fancy metalic floss.
It shows the shape of the hairband before the elastic goes on.


This pic has all 3 that I have made so far.

This one has beads and lots of embroidery.

This is the first one that I made. In these pics, you can see how the elastic attaches

This pic shows ho I stitched in the backing fabric to "cover all the workings"

I hope that you enjoy the headbands and look forward to seeing some as competition entries. They make great Christmas presents too.

Big box of fabrics! New competition.

Hi Everyone,

It's great to see that I have had some vistors from America! I added a Neoworx counter cause it's so cute and it even says what city people are from...

I joined the Block Lotto- check it out (there is a link on the left). You make a block each month as per directions and post a pic of it on the blog and at the end of the month one is chosen and then everyone send a block to them so that then can make the quilt... very cool. This month is a wonky house block but it has to be up before Sept 30th, so I am going to wait until next month.

I got this huge box of fabrics on Friday - which cheered me up no end and even made me forget that I had the flu! I plan to use some of them for the SUDOKU quilts or course there will be square packs and some new headband kits. I know I said this post but I will try to get them up tonight. I am going to offer some of the Red Rooster and Quilters treasures fabrics as FQpacks as so many customers have asked for them. So BLOG readers can of course pre order fabrics by sending me an email or message and I will get them in the store ASAP.

 Now as I promised a competition- the prize is a pack of 2.5" squares each month. The competition will be for the best project of the month and I will choose the winner of the previous on the 1st of each month.
All you have to do is email me a pic of your completed quilting/patchwork or embroidery project (small jpg files please) before the 28th of the month. I will post the pics on the blog so everyone can see. I will begin the next competition for October now- so send your pics :)

Cheers for now,

Christmas is coming!

Hi Everyone,

I have been sick for the last few days, which means heaps of time to think and have new ideas. 
Looking through catalogues all I see are Christmas present ideas, most of which will be cool on the day and then never used again- what a colossal waste of money.
This made me think of quilting kits that are cool on the day AND give hours of enjoyment once the fuss of Christmas is over.
One idea that me came to me was the puzzle quilt. 
As anyone who knows me will tell you, I am into quick gratification and long complex project hold my excitement for a while but never get finished. That is why most of my quilting kits are weekend projects for cushions. 
Sure you can get 4 kits and make a cool lap quilt if you want to.. I have designed them so that several kits work together to make a bigger quilt as i am a fan of "quilt as you go"(basically make each block start to finish including batting and quilting and then so each block together as they are finished) I love it because it is really easy and means you can take your project anywhere, it is always small and can be finished in a few days. 
Then when you have made say, four cushion blocks, you can sew them together into a cool lap quilt and it doesn't feel like it will never be done!
 Sorry I went off on a tangent! I do that :(
Anyways back to the puzzle quilt that I was talking about- 
my first kits will be SUDOKU puzzles that once you solve give you a cool quilt pattern.
I thought that SUDOKU was a perfect puzzle for a quilt as it is basically a series of 9 square blocks.
I know that I am not the first person to think of this as there are a couple of books on the market but I am not sure if any kits are out there yet. I think that I will make and easy kit for around $30 that has one easy puzzle and 4 inch squares to make a lap quilt as well as some harder kits for $50+ with four harder puzzles and 2.5 inch squares that fit together into a lap quilt.
The fabrics arrived today so over the next few days I will be putting the quilt kits together.
I am using nice everyday fabrics rather than the seasonal ones even thought they are designed as Christmas gifts, I think that it will make them easier to keep enthusiastic about once Christmas is over.
I really would like some input on the idea and the price points and will put up some photos of the fabrics as soon as I can.
