Patchwork Classes with Lizzet & more to see......

Lizzet has made this gorgeous eye catching 9 patch quilt for her new class "Patchwork Basics".
Starting on Wednesday May 15th at 7:00 - 9:00 pm and running for 4 weeks (May 15th, 22nd, 29th & June 5th)

This course is for students who want a quick and simple introduction to the essentials of pieceing and quilting a patchwork quilt. This class will cover rotary cutting and all of the essential sewing skills for creating patchwork by machine...... Call the store on (08) 93882858 to book your position in the class as spaces are limited....

Here is another quilt also made by Lizzet, showing her talent for colour & fabric selection. 

"Wonky Stars" as it is called is a gift for Lizzet's youngest sister who lives in Mexico

Again by Lizzet this beautiful Boho quilt in some of the old traditional roses we have in the shop

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
