Redwork and Marmalade

It was a great week back at the shop, and very busy firstly l had to put the shop back together,  as l had some changes done over the break so that was great fun. And what was more interesting are the customers who knew that some thing was different but couldnt actually work out what l had done.  So if l remember this week l will take some photos to show you whats been done………

I managed to get the new Bonnie and Camille  collection called Marmalade onto the shelves, it is a great collection with  bright colours  the good thing to know is that this collection can be used with their previous collection  Vintage Rose so its a very clever way of designing and helpful to fabric collectors…………

Over the hols, l finished another quilt from the book called The Redwork Circus by Jenny McWhinney, its just packed with projects and the quilt design is a new venture for her as she is more known for her threadwork designs, so arent we the lucky ones.

Another good thing about this quilt, is l used all fabrics that l had at home, it suits red fabrics that have white backgrounds or cream backgrounds so l felt quite thrifty using the fabric from home.  Maybe that is more of a reflection of what l actually have at home???  The book is currently in stock and of course l have heaps of reds on the shelf at the shop that can be used……………
