New Quilts by Hilda at Materialise......

These very popular and very versatile linens came back into stock this week with the addition of a couple of new colours
Large floor cushion inserts are also available 85x85cms with a 20cm gusset. Made from recycled drink bottles.... Crazy i know but these inserts stay really plump and don't flatten down.. We also have regular cushion inserts in stock.
 Hilda has been extremely busy making quilts for the shop and surprised me with this beautiful, fun and fresh quilt this week. Hilda used new fabrics that just arrived at Materialise and we featured on our last post...
 Hilda also made this divine quilt using the Japanese indigos we have in store that are so stylish and coveted by many

The large Chinese symbol means Love and I think its safe to say many will Love this quilt. 

The wave style quilt really works with the pieceing design Hilda has selected

Thank you Hilda, I Love your work, these quilts are so stylish....

A lovely gentle mix of colours

Hilda is our newest staff member at Materialise and she has also made this striking patchwork quilt as a gift to be sent to a far off land......

Hilda incorporated the traditional Aboriginal fabrics we have in store and based her quilt on a pattern called "Big Wheel" designed by Bridgitte Heitland. Hilda added the braid borders to really bring the whole design together. Machine quilted by Hilda's friend Michelle Griffiths, Hilda wanted the ripple effect to give it a traditional Aboriginal feel.....

These cute new fabrics arrived. They are made from 100% organic cotton so they have a really soft surface finish. Perfect for little boys who are mad for Robots!!! My little girl Liberty Violet who just turned one is also having a few friends birthday's coming up soon so I've been making cushions as gifts for her friends with these fabrics.
Some of my cushions are also avaiable to buy in store.... Feather filled Novelty cushions 40x60cms; Prices start at $45
I have also made a range of gorgeous Liberty cushions to sell in the shop......

These feather filled 40x60cm cushions are very reasonably priced. Cushions made from Liberty fabrics; prices start at $65

 Amy is one of our long standing customers & she made this colourful strippy quilt using cotton sateens she had collected over a little while for the new house she has just finished building..... Well done Girl!

 Amy quilted a free motion cloud design using her new whiz bang Bernina sewing machine

 Using every single piece Amy pieced together this cool Boho border to complete the quilt and then used a lace on the very edge as a trimming
