Pre-cuts for the Boys & Merry Christmas!

I have recently taken delivery of two new fabulous collections that I ordered with the boys in mind. I know I have many fabrics and kits which are far too floral and pretty for the men in our lives, so these new sets of pre-cuts are for them!

The first is the Quantum Bygg collection from Andover Fabrics, designed by Giuseppe Ribaudo, also known as Giucy Giuce in the social media world. These richly coloured fabrics feature geometric prints inspired by quantum physics diagrams, with no flowers in sight! The 40pc strip set (aka jelly roll) includes two strips each of twenty designs, while the 42pc charm pack has two 5" squares in each of 19 designs and four squares in another

This second new collection is from the company Dear Stella and features the cutest seagulls dressed in wooly jumpers and hats, ditsy fish and crabs, mermaids and lighthouses and even the odd shark!

In bright and modern blues and orange, this is another great collection for quilts for the often neglected men in the family - or what about a quilt for that seaside getaway or for a day at the beach? The 42pc Charm pack contains six 5" squares in seven different designs, while the fat quarter bundle is made up of seven fat quarters - more than enough to make a baby or even lap quilt - add a blender and you could make a single or even double bed quilt.

I had a lovely email from a regular customer this month who sent me pics of her latest creation. Gillian bought one of the Connewarra Red Strip sets along with the last fat quarter bundle and took inspiration from my Fox in the Nine Patch free pattern to make this glorious quilt. She used the jelly roll for the front - isn't that pieced border wonderful! And then used the fat quarters for a great pieced backing, this really is two quilts in one! Thank you so much for sharing your quilt Gillian, I look forward to seeing your next one ;)

Meanwhile, I've actually found some time to sew this week - here is a new Hexy cushion kit in progress, and I also had this commissioned quilt back from the longarmers, North Star Quilting, who as ever did a wonderful job. 

I'm taking a break over the festive period and looking forward to getting down to my mum's and helping her to enjoy my husband's amazing cooking as well as the odd bottle of red. So for now, I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Peaceful and Creative New Year!

  7. The business news channels are pretty much mouth pieces for the security industry and the government. They are sort of like cheer leaders. But then they would not receive too much advertising if they were not.
