Meet the Designers of Moda ~ Crystal Lake fabric October 19, 2019 12:53

Today I was cutting up some more fat quarters of the Moda Crystal lake fabric and I thought I would check out who designed it.

It is designed by two sisters, Polly and Laurie.Their brand is called Mimick & Simpson. They are both from Michigan, USA.

Inspiration for this fabric range is a lake in their State.

They say "Crystal Lake practically abuts the much larger Lake Michigan and it is well, just beautiful. Clear blue water and and an endless horizon shaped by golden dunes.  We hope you like how this beautiful part of our beloved Michigan inspired our new collection." Read the full blog from Laurie here >>

The blues and tans are inspired by this local lake that has sand dunes. We have some of their range including blue & tan stars and flowers.

Who loves Sweet Peas? June 15, 2019 11:19

I do! These flowers are my favourite flower. So much so that I named our cottage "Sweet Pea Cottage". We have 5 fabrics from the new Moda range "Sweet pea & Lily". Bright greens & pinks to cheer up a winter's day. Enjoy!

Willowbrook Market Garden range has arrived May 29, 2019 17:47

I have enjoyed receiving Australian designer, Natalie Bird's, debut fabric range this week.

It includes panels that have cute garden themed pictures or you can buy the stitchery panel and choose your own colours.

Some of the fabric has two colours of the same design on the same bolt. So when you get a 1/2 metre cut then you get 2 designs.

Hopefully soon we will have some patterns to go with the fabric.

New Cottage Garden Threads have arrived January 22, 2019 17:36 8 Comments

If you want something different to stitch with I would recommend the CGT threads. They are stranded threads that have been pre-cut and are variegated colours. This means if you are travelling you can do a project with just one colour and get a great looking finish as the variety of colours will appear as you stitch. I have added 9 more colours to our range and when you buy the assorted packs they are only $7 each.

Collage Quilting Paintery technique June 30, 2018 08:06

Enjoying trying out the "paintery" technique making a picture with small strips of fabric. Using the "Making Fish" pattern by Laura Heine.

Enjoyed making this bag for a friend! April 6, 2018 11:24

I have used the "Melly & Me" Fat Quarter bag pattern for this bag. You just choose 4 fat quarters that you like and then decide which part of the bag you would like to use them. Darker fabrics are good for the handles and top of the bag. My friend likes designer Kath Kidson so I chose fabrics that were similar to her design style.
