Fresh & Fun...! Works in progress

This week Susan popped in to show me some of the really cool things she has been working on.
I absolutely fell in LOVE with these amazing pieced babushka dolls.
Each composition has been expertly crafted by looking at the colours within each panel then using them in a variety of exciting co-ordinates which make the colours sing
I especially Love how Susan has joined her blocks together with the soft linen spot. It's exquiste & really gives that ultra retro feel
Susan is also hand piecing these magnificent paper pieced hexagons.... The quilt thus far is really something eye catching
 Joan also finished her massive strippy quilt with boho borders
Joan is also piecing up her back to use up all the left over fabrics which I will show you once it's been quilted.
 Jade also finished piecing this quilt top from the book "Quilt Love" which we now have in stock. This is Jade's first quilt and I just love the colours & fabrics she has combined
 If you come in this week you will see we have a lovely selection of gifts, books, bindings and new quilts to show you. Lizzet has quilted her little baby's quilt and this week we discussed doing a boy version too
If you are currently thinking about or planning a wedding you simply must take a look at this inspiring book "Vintage Wedding Style". There are some really fun and nifty ideas.....
Lucy's Liberty table runner is on display in the shop for all those in love with Lucy's Liberty Christmas.  
This book "Paper Bliss" sends my imagination into overdrive...... Obviously with a emphasis on paper, they also incorporate lots of yummy fabrics into the projects. 
Liberty & I are in love with this amazing children's book so I thought I would share it's beauty with you  too.
