Hello lovely quilters, how are you all this week?
I’m slowly getting back my equilibrium. There are twinges of creativity that I’m nudging along. I’m getting a lot of work done behind the scenes, Terri and I are 3/4’s through updating the patterns. I think we’ve edited about 60 out of 80 patterns. They now have clearer instructions, more coloured diagrams, coloured templates etc.
The ‘Pretty Little Kitties‘ pattern has been uploaded to our Etsy store and our web-store. I’ve put the PDF and printed versions on special as part of our Friday Favourites promo. You won’t need to purchase this pattern if you own the Happy Quilts book. This is the second quilt in the Pretty Kitties series.
All you have to do is to leave a comment telling me what your favourite movie is. My daughters have put ‘To Catch a Thief’ on the TV tonight. Don’t you just love the costumes at the end of the movie in the big costume ball scene!
I always loved the deep blue velvet of Jessie Royce Landis’ dress best. The contrast of the silver against the darkest deep blue. It’s gorgeous!
One day I’d like to make a quilt from velvet. It would be so heavy, but so decadently gorgeous too. The closest I came was the Bohemian Rhapsody quilt which was made out of the heaviest, velvet-like flannel.
Oooh there’s that little spark of creativity again, it surfaced for a minute in a thrill of fabric-y anticipation.
Lastly, Terri and I made the executive decision to re-write the Spooky Sleepover pattern so it’s just a quilt. We’ve renamed it Sleepy Hollow and I’ve fixed the horrendous border instructions. How the heck did a stuff up a simple border like that? Don’t panic if you already have the pattern, the border is fine if you follow the instructions. However, damn! what was I thinking. I plead lack of sleep, neighbourly stress, and the need to make the measurements of the quilt fit the parameters of a quillow LoL.
Have a fabulous weekend everyone, I’m heading off to google where to buy velvet! toni xx
