Can’t believe it is December already & the year is almost over!
I have so many new books available to inspire you but first I’d like to offer a great deal on very gently used workshop irons & ironing mats. These have been used for a maximum of 6 hours with some probably less than this. They were purchased to be used by students at the Australian Machine Quilting Festival this year and have been tested and tagged ready for you to have an iron that gets very hot, has steam along with an ironing mat you can use on any surface.
These are limited and the tags are valid until 21st August 2019.
Only $25- plus postage (weight 1.2kg) below cost price!
We have managed to get three more bolts of the VERY popular Dream Big Panels!
Opal, Teal & Rose are available again.
$33.30 each plus postage – Limited supplies and this will be the last time I get these in.
Some NEW Modern books to inspire you are in stock now….
From the start, award-winning quilter and teacher Catherine Redford guides you through every stage of planning, constructing, and finishing a quilt. Learn a multitude of crisp walking foot designs, including straight lines, matchstick, grids, serpentine, spirals, and more. Explore more than a dozen techniques and patterns for free-motion designs. You’ll find inspiration in the gorgeous quilt gallery, while the simple projects provide the perfect canvases for fun and useful quilting practice. And as you go, you can take notes on the roomy, workbook-style pages to make this book your own perfect personalized resource for Modern Machine Quilting.
A modern approach to quilting that’s fresh, fun, and simpler than it sounds; it will change the way you quilt (for the better)
• Great for mums or anyone with a busy schedule – these 13 projects are easy to transport because they make it simple to pick up where you left off
• Go your own way: This method allows you to use a pattern or improvise, creating a wide variety of design options
• Save money! Learn how to finish your own quilts without the use of a long-arm professional
Do you believe rules were meant to be broken? If so, this improvisational quilt-as-you-go technique is for you. Instead of dealing with precise paper patterns and cutting measurements, you’ll learn how to piece fabric onto small, manageable batting blocks. Let your creative juices flow as you quilt directly on the blocks (not the whole quilt!), whether in large abstract zigzags or small structured stitches. After the blocks have been joined, all you need to do is add backing fabric and binding, and – voila – it’s finished!
Follow step-by-step illustrations to create more than 70 free-motion quilting designs to use in specific shapes, negative space, and borders
• Features full-page quilt photos, close-up details of stitched designs, and a comprehensive visual index
• Best-selling author Angela Walters takes you to the next level in free-motion quilting by showing you how to manipulate shapes into modern designs
Reduced from $42.00 to $36.50 pp
A natural follow-up to the best-selling Create Your Own Free-Form Quilts, this book applies Rayna’s no rules, no mistakes, no stress style to modern quilting. Starting with strips and geometric shapes, you’ll cut and sew without patterns, required yardage, or complicated diagrams. This freeing method lets you create modern quilts organically as you follow your instincts, ask what if, and experiment with scale, colour, value, and placement.
+ Fresh explorations of shape, line, and colour
+ Paper piecing without lines and numbers!
+ Ideas and examples to inspire your creativity
