A new Hexy Kit on the block - and we have a winner!

Thank you to all you wonderful people who entered our Prize Giveaway to win a Mono Flowers strip set and charm pack bundle! I am very pleased to announce we have a winner… Penny H, who on Facebook said these fabrics and colours are very her, so I can’t wait to see what she makes! Congratulations Penny! I have messaged you on Facebook :) 

 

New gems from Sewmotion

As well as our Mono Flowers pre-cuts above, I’ve been busy cutting away and have just released this Japanese beauty.

This Japanese stripper set consists of 40 strips - four each of 10 designs, all from Sevenberry’s Japanese collection, and are priced at £35 each - and don't forget we offer free UK postage! I do love these rich colours with highlights of pink and cream, so Japanese! I have so many ideas of what to make with this, and if I can get away from the computer, I may just do that! 

The other pre-cut released this week is this cute 6-piece Fat Quarter Bundle made up of four prints from Dashwood Studio’s new Fablewood collection, plus two blenders from their Twist range. These bundles are £17.50 each (with free UK postage) - I can see another Beginner’s Quilt Kit coming on ready for the Craft Fair season.

Talking of craft fairs, our first of the year will be on Sunday 24th April, 10am-3pm, at The Rainbow Plant Centre’s Vintage/Craft Fair in Nunthorpe, near Stokesley – if you’re local it would be lovely to see you there.

This week, we also have a new Hexy Cushion Kit on the block – this version of our pre-cut hexagon kit features this gorgeous soft pink from Sevenberry’s Japanese range, together with Robert Kaufman’s Essex Linen and a Kona Graphite. 

Each kit includes 10 fabric strips, 80 hexy papers, a Sewline Glue Pen, Aurifil thread and full colour instructions to make a 16”sq. cushion – the perfect portable holiday project, or a great introduction to hand-sewn English paper-piecing.

It seems I've been staring at the computer screen all week, I’ve been updating sewmotion.com and have a new checkout, you can now pay with all major credit cards without having a Paypal account!  Having said that, one of the things I love about writing these blogs is that it makes me realise the amount I actually get done in a week and that I haven’t been stuck at the Mac afterall!

I would just like to leave you with pics of my latest quilt, Monochrome Sunset (soon to be released as a kit). I forget it was only last weekend that we had glorious sunshine, and we managed to take some beautiful shots at our local landmark, Teesside’s Transporter bridge. I hope you like them!


This week I'm linking up with Needle & Thread Thursday over at My Quilt Infatuation, and Sew Fresh Quilt's Let's Bee Social - come and say hello and be inspired!
