Quote of the Week:
You can always tell a quilter from the threads she wears . . .

We just had to share with you all this amazing quilt that one of our good friends, Sally made. She completed it in only four months - all hand pieced - King Size - 2,508 hexagons in total !!!
Her mother-in-law, Kali, gave Sally the fabric last year for her birthday in October - a gorgeous bundle of reproduction called "Charleston III and here is the end result. We'd love to hear your comments.

We are both busy here preparing for our Autumn Gathering which is only six days away now. Everyone is looking forward to it and so are we!! We do have a couple of spots left if anyone is thinking whether or not to come - but be quick!!

As well as getting ready for Saturday, Deirdre has managed to whip up yet another quilt in some new fabric that came into the shop last week called "Happy Trails". The fabric is vintage 1950's in bright, yet muted tones with cowboys, pistols, bucking bronco's, stars & wagons. It's a fantastic quilt for a boy - what do you think??

We have kits ready to go which include pattern, all fabrics for the top as well as binding for only $145.00. You can view the fabric on our website.

Well, there is much to do, so I must be off to tackle some more chores.

Be sure to check back next Monday on our blog for photos of our Autumn Gathering.

Until next time,

Leonie & Deirdre

The Quilted Crow

We think it is absolutely fantastic and she is totally obsessed
