Jenny Pedigo's Quick curve ruler has been very successful at the quilt fairs I have attended...there are more on order this week in my web shop.  I thought I would join Jenny in her quick curve ruler quilt along!  Looks  like fun....find the patterns on her site Why not join in too?

New book....

A couple of weeks ago I came across a wonderful Japanese books called 163 My favourite patterns.....I  found Megumi's site on etsy and ordered it right away!!  And here it is already!!! Wonderful service!!
And it is all I'd hoped it would be....despite the fact that it is all in Japanese, the pictures are clear and the patterns are detailed and relatively easy to draft.   Some look quite a challenge but all the more fun!

I will post some piccies when I get round to trying the blocks.... oh for more time!!!

I'm still here!!!

Suddenly realised that I have not blogged for quite a while!!  We have been 'on holiday' the last two weeks (at home) trying to catch up on things!  Did we get anything done? well, no, not really...just lots of days out, a nice front garden and a bit of a rest!
My online shop is getting started and the longarm quilting remains busy and a real passion!  The woollies are just as woolly (a bit like me these days!!) and we are getting used to being empty nesters!

Busy making a Bella sunburst quilt right now, and keeping going with my Green tea and Sweet beans quilt.....OO, mustn't forget...the pattern is now on my store!   Just love this pattern!
