Anne Baxter

Catching up with Anne Baxter

Valerie recently caught up with Anne in her Devon studios.  We learn more about the workshops that she is sharing with us, why she turned to hand quilting and also about the Navajo Blanket quilt – an old favourite of them both – which will be shared with you on a monthly basis as a Block of the Month starting Jan 2018 (as there are different techniques covered in the various sections, this could be considered to be a style of sampler quilt.). Watch Now+

Kathleen Laurel Sage

Book of the Month

Our Book of the Month for January is Butterflies and Flowers by Kathleen Laurel Sage .  It’s a collection of ready-to-use designs that will bring mother nature indoors for you including butterflies fluttering through ornate flowers, clematis climbing through trellis, plus many more carefully chosen floral patterns, including poppies, daisies and roses for you to use with machine embroidery, water soluble film and reverse applique.  As it’s our Book of the Month, it comes with FREE p&p in the UK in January 2018. More Info+

KLS

Or if you’re inspired by Mythical creatures of land and sea, why not try Kathleen’s Dragons, Beautiful Creatures and Sea Life design book. The lovely illustrations have been outlined in black to make it easy for you to use with machine embroidery, water soluble film and reverse applique. More Info+

Castle Wall

Castle Wall Block with Carolyn Forster

Did you catch Carolyn’s Workshop at the end of the year for this traditional block created around an octagonal centre. As there are so many inset seams, Carolyn shows you how this is so much easier to sew by hand;  she creates the small units of squares and diamonds, and if any of the corner units are pieced then they are sewn too, so that she is then ready to add them to the centre. Learn More +
