Hearty Good Wishes
The title of a book and now a fabric range from Janet Clare; not only is she the featured author of our Book of the Month (so free p&p in the UK) but she now has a lovely range of fabrics inspired by the cool colours of our coastal landscape in winter; enjoy seeing and learning more about this lovely range, which is being distributed by Moda.
More about Borders
Valerie gives you some tips about how to make your fabric stretch so that you end up with a quilt/project that looks as though you designed it that way. We also have a quick link for more border tips and ideas:
With the children off school maybe you need some inspiration; again we have a quick link for you ‘children’ and this will show you stuff for the children to do as well as inspiration for the older generation to make.
If you can’t see our right-hand panel of goodies from the shop, which includes the Book of the Month, Playful Petals book which uses precuts (jelly rolls and 5” squares); Sonata Embroidery Kit; Sewing Tidy pattern in a heart shape (and if you like this sort of thing – use the quick links ‘equipment’ to discover more) then you should tap on ‘download entire message/email’ at the bottom of this email.
