Okay, we could say that we are months away from Christmas, but the weather is ideal for quilting, and it’s always good to be prepared.
So our special this month is a Christmas bundle. Jennifer did some lovely cushions which show off our Christmas Angel.
This month’s blog contains some ideas about why, and how, to have a fabric stash. This blog post was the result of an evening discussion with my Tuesday night quilting group. Thank you for all your ideas, I am now looking at my stash a bit differently.
Charlotte has also done an excellent video on how to use the Set-a-seam tool on your machine to set an accurate 1/4″ seam.
Thanks for reading, and I hope to meet some of you over the next couple of months. Enjoy your quilting, Carol
Online Special: A Christmas bundle – buy our Christmas Angel and get the Christmas tree (normally $15) free, for a short time.
Our Christmas Angel is so versatile, the wings are separate so you can use the body shape. These are Jennifer’s cushions in the photo!
The tree can be used in so many ways. I made some out of felt to hang on the Christmas tree. It was fun hand sewing the decorations from my bits and pieces collection.
We also give you a free pattern of a girl’s quilt with the set.
Order the Angel now, and have some fun with a nice small manageable project.
Charlotte made a useful video for me on how to use this tool. Even though I have a 1/4″ foot, I use it when I need my 1/4″ seam to be really accurate. It is excellent value at $12.50.

This is our smallest square. Did you know we make all sizes up to 15 1/2″? At only $8 it’s a bargain, I have seen them selling for $28. This is the smallest size block that I cut, anything smaller goes to the local playcentre! I join these scraps together and slowly build up a scrap quilt. It’s great for when you only have half an hour to spare, or if you just want to sew without thinking too much! Add one to your next order, it might help you get your order to $45 for free postage.
