New Fat Quarter Bundles and Mammoth Curved EPP sewing!

This week I've finally uploaded some lovely new fat quarter bundles into the Sewmotion shop. When I buy these ranges, I have all the best intentions of designing and making them into kits and pre-cuts, but then time runs away from me and I find them collecting dust on the shelves. So I thought it was about time to get them out into the real world and share them with my customers! As you can tell, I've fallen for Makower's ranges in a big way at the moment - those Christmas ranges are so cute!! You can click here to find out more and to see the whole collection of fat quarter bundles.


I've been making great progress on my latest curved EPP mammoth quilt. For my Rainbow Rings I turned to my stash for some colour inspiration, and using my favourite EPP method, designed these four concentric circle designs. Now the piecing is complete, I just have to appliqué them onto the grey background and quilt it - should keep me busy for a while!



I'm also developing some new cushion designs to make into kits, including this Overlapping Circles cushion in those gorgeous Blue Sky fabrics from Edyta Sitar.



I have so many new kits and patterns in the pipeline, all in preparation for August's Festival of Quilts. I have worked this amazing four-day quilt show (Europe's largest I think) for my old employers Doughty's for the last eight years, but this is the first one I'll be doing for myself, and I won't lie, I am starting to panic at the amount of work I need to do!! Not only have I lots of existing kits to make up, but my brain won't stop coming up with new ideas - really annoying!! Anyway, you'll find me buried in pre-cuts and kit boxes for the next two months, with some curved EPP thrown in for good measure :)

Linking up with Let's Bee Social, Midweek Makers and Needle & Thread Thursday.
