It's a Patchwork Quilt!
or is it?
No it's PotatoHead in (guess where anyone??????)
Yep you got it! Bali

Just before I went away one of my long standing and clearly very talented clients Di came to Materialise and took my breath away with this truely magnificient and masterful piece of workmanship.
Wow..... I Love It! Such a Labour of Love. I can see in every stitch how much Di is enjoying making this truely remarkable heirloom.
Sue made her 2nd grand daughter this fresh and fun loving quilt
Sue was a bit nervous and not really sure how she would go conquering my Boho design from the pattern, without a lesson....
I think we can all clearly see that Sue has nailed it to the floor! I Love It! It's so fresh and fun & just what a lil' baby girl needs
Lindsey another quilt mistress who not only makes many amazing quilts, but also an exciting array of softies, cute & very covetable bibs (so I hear on the grapevine from those who receive them ) and cute little clothes for her grand children and their friends.

In an attempt to lure you into the store (and away from ordering fabrics online from the US) I have made up some unique 6inch Novelty Square sets with fabrics that you as customers have been asking for that I had in my stash. Be quick as they are not available online anywhere, only at Materialise Now!
Here is a small selection of the fabrics I have put into the store..........
