Quote of the Week:
Blankets wrap you in warmth, quilts wrap you in love . . .
How nice it was this morning to see the reaction of a husband whose wife had commissioned us to make them a quilt in reproduction fabrics . . . "It's so beautiful, it makes me want to cry" . . . It made the hours and hours of work worthwhile to hear such a statement. Once it is quilted on our dear 'Big Mal', we'll post a photo.
We have a gorgeous new range of fabric just arrived into the shop titled "Emperor's Garden" by A Day in the Country. It is a great crossover for those of you who enjoy working with 30's thru to 70's. This is an Australian company and we are glad to be supporting them.
We are madly getting ready for our Christmas Gathering which is only five weeks away now (Sat 6th October). The projects should all be ready within three to four weeks and you'll be able to come into the shop to have a peek. There is a lot of variety to choose from with each one able to be started by hand on the day
We are starting to fill all of the goody bags for the occasion - it's exciting making them all up and seeing what's going into them - we hope all the ladies will love them as much as we do!
We have a few quilts here ready to go on 'Big Mal', our longarm quilting machine. Customers have been very happy with our work thus far which is very satisfying and we are enjoying it immensely.
Don't forget to look out for Deirdre's project in Homespun - a gorgeous Halloween quilt done using machine piecing and invisible machine applique - a must to make!!
That just about ties it up for today . . . a quilt is beckoning on the machine.
Until next time,
Leonie & Deirdre
The Quilted Crow
