Lately the rain has been a bit of a pain and caused some flooding in our lil' shop
Inspired by the new Cotton & Steel fabric ranges I decided I should make this quilt asking the Rain to Go Away. I am really happy wit the way it turned out especially the Yuwa stripe I used for binding, it adds a real sense of fun and carnivale

A couple of blogs ago I posted some pics of these gorgeous Japanese fabrics that had arrived into the store.....
This week I put together this busy quilt top
Selecting three tonal elements... Background, dark windmill blades and windmill centres
The method is as simple as string piecing then cutting 45 degree angles
The result was these Japanese Windmills which is a bit of a departure from my normal improv style quilts... However I enjoy the combination of colours and the movement that this design creates....

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...
