Rose Garden Quilt Kit

Hello.......
This beautiful quilt has received a lot of attention from customers visiting the store. 
The Rose Garden quilt as it is called is now finished and we have kits with the exact same fabrics seen here. 
The quilt is combination of Yuwa and Liberty fabrics and is a simple strippy quilt with a boho border. 
This is the back view showing how we have used some of the boho piecing from the front to make our backing larger. The free motion quilting is a simple flower design and makes the quilt soft and relaxed by not being over quilted. 
The latest instalment from the Cotton & Steel Collective is now available in store. There are some great prints in this new range including some really cool double gauze fabrics. 
We have a whole new range of double gauze wraps and facecloths in stock as well, including Cotton & Steel gauze
Here we show you the ever popular apple print that makes the perfect gift for those looking for gender neutral...

Pretty New Trims and Things at Materialise

Excited and inspired by the latest selection of Liberties we have in the store, this fresh quilt top emerged this week using a sweet selection of prints from the new children's collection 'The Garden of Dreams'....
We've had a lovely selection of fresh and fun new trims arrive this week. Including this ostrich feather..... 
When I saw these feathers I immediately wanted to trim a simple singlet like this for my little Liberty girl..... (She is def no angel but she might look like one wearing a singlet like this!)
It can easily be made as a detachable piece that simply gets removed when it is time to throw this cotton singlet into the wash.....

Pretty cotton lace is something I get continually asked for, so here it is. This lace is super wide and would make a divine skirt. It measures 33cms (13 inches) from top to bottom. 
In addition this delicious piece of lace is 3 inches wide and would make a great trim for a skirt.
I am looking forward to using this lovely daisy chain trim combined with a simple gingham check in a smock top or dress for my little girl. 
This embroidered cotton ribbon is about 3.5 inches wide and would make a great yoke in a gathered skirt or in a smock top too. 
I couldn't resist this bling! It's iron on and for all of you making tiara's for dress ups this would make a simple and very effective addition for your little princess. 
An essential item in my wardrobe is a 3 inch wide black low slung elasticated belt. I have just managed to find this decorative elastic and these black matt finish belt buckles which I'm really excited about.....
 Come in and see us today as we are open on Saturday over the Easter weekend.....

Just when you thought it could get no better; Liberty Art Fabrics release 'The Garden of Dreams'. This mind blowing collection of designs for Childrenswear is based on the poems by Robert Louis Stevenson in 'A Child's Garden of Verses'.

Jump aboard your own little sailing ship to the wondrous Garden of Dreams, where childhood treasures abound.....
Where colourful kites dance overhead, and stars sprinkle down on dreamers in bed.....
Lose yourself in the 'Liberty Story Book' - a design tale of dreams and make believe. Told to us with this amazing selection of pictorial designs in which the detail is out of this world....
 These beautiful and captivating Liberty prints are available now only at Materialise!
