exciting!




today I discovered that *finally* new fabrics are coming out from Denyse Schmidt.


Flea Market Fancy and Katie Jump Rope (her last two ranges) are my all time favourite fabric collections, but the new Hope Valley range are promising to be amazing!


meanwhile a poor quality photo of my current WIP - green tumbling blocks, for my bed. Current dilemma - what quilting design to use and do i experiment with hand quilting? free motion quilting? or stick with machining straight lines... would love to hand quilt but suspect it may never get finished if i go for that...




Unfortunately looks like a few more months til its available, but that just gives me more time to plan what I want to make - definitely loving this bluey greeny grey colourway. And thinking that given whats happened with flea market fancy (going out of print and becoming so hard to find) maybe i'll decide its a necessary investment to just buy a metre of each of them for the stash?



This is what I'm working on at the moment - green tumbling blocks for my bed. Big question is - if I start hand quilting it, will i ever finish it????

Your quilting prowess is impressive! I'm blown away by the amount of work in all of those pieces. Nice work.
