Weather permitting, this Saturday I will be having my first PatchyRose sale of quilts, cushions and bags! I was offered this spot only a week ago, and have been sewing every spare moment ever since...
This plus quilt was inspired by a beautiful fat cross one which Maryse made recently. I kept mine to the width of the backing fabric, then made a large coordinating cushion. In all honesty, these have to be some of my favourite quilty things I've ever made, so I will be more than happy if noone buys them! Dipping my toe into the waters of a sale is only a result of our house being full to capacity, so I need to sell purely to make more... Quilters' logic!
Next up I used some of the gorgeous Catnap fabrics to whip up a tote bag and a matching zipped bag. Again, I will happily absorb these for my own use! There's definitely more sewing in the pipeline though, as I also won a giveaway!! I will admit to feeling a little embarrassed, as I am sure I have now won more than my fair share... As a result, I am now being very restrained, and not entering any more for a while!
This particular one was kindly given by Carla, who works in this amazing looking quilt shop. Carla was recently able to create two different charm packs for the shop, and then allowed to give a pair away on her blog :-) Honestly, if I ever needed a personal shopper for quilt fabrics, I would go to Carla! Above shows the low volume pack, and below is a 'modern' pack.
I cannot wait to get started on these! Carla and I must share similar taste, ironically we have both just made very similar plus quilts without knowing it... I did check on the shop website for these charm packs, but didn't see them listed. If you would like to purchase some yourself, I imagine you could contact them and mention the packs which Carla made! Thank you, Carla.
