Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt Week 6

So sorry it has been a while since we've checked in. I've had a few custom jobs weighing on me that really needed to get done as well as a craft camp to attend!

So at our craft camp I learnt the art of paper piecing. Something I wasn't sure how I'd go with. But I can honestly say that I am LOVING it. So here are some of the blocks from the book that I have paper pieced. 







The secret to such a successful time can be contributed to my teacher at camp, so thank you Clare, and this awesome tool. 


It's the add a quarter ruler that we have instock now and it is wonderful. A must for every foundation paper piecer out there.

ABC boys quilt FINISHED

Well, almost finished. It needs to be quilted and bound but the main part is done. 


30 little blocks later and it is done. My favourite is the B block. Sooo cute. 

Oh and did I say before I would get the girls version going once this one was finished? 


Ta-da. Kits are all done and available now but we thought it would be nice to have a store sample. So here goes. 


This is the pattern. Also available now. 

And here is what I've started...


Block A stitchery done

Christmas Club project 2

Well hello March. Nice to see you. I can't wait for the cooler Autumn weather to begin. 


This month our Christmas Club ladies are making a half apron. This is perfect for protecting your clothes while baking or just for getting you in the festive spirit. 

It is a free pattern provided by www.phyllisdobbs.info

Fabric kits are now available, even if you aren't in the Christmas Club for just $22 each. (plus $3 postage)

February flashback!

We love to see a picture of you with your monthly project... Or even if you just send me a picture of your project would be lovely. 

Our lovely friend and Christmas Clubber Tracey. 

We have already had one sewing group inspired by our first project. So if you are looking for another of the star pincushion kits in fabrics other than Christmas, these beauties are waiting for you.
