Hello! It’s (nearly) Christmas!




Well hello lovely people, it’s been a little while since I updated y’all with what’s happening. Gosh what a messy end to the year.

First up, thank you, all of you, for your support this past year. It’s been amazing. Love and best festive wishes to you and yours from the Red Boots family.


Well I didn’t get to make a Christmas quilt this year. How pathetic is that!? The last few months have been spent trying to navigate the new and ongoing shipping, tax, and Covid changes that are being (or have been) introduced. What. A. Nightmare!

I’m going to spend the next couple of weeks sorting it out so I can start 2022 afresh. The online store will be a mess for the short term. The Etsy store is up-to-date with pricing if you prefer to shop there for the time being.


What’s coming in 2022? A new sew-along *yay* starting a little later in the year to give me time to get on top of it. The Fairytale quilt was nearly the end of me lolz.

I want to spend 2022 shouting to the universe that fusible quilts are real quilts and are just as durable and useable as pieced and traditional (applique) quilts. Gosh we’re a snobby bunch aren’t we lol. Fusible webbing is amazing stuff!!!


Our digital patterns (on this site – use the menu on the right) are still listed at their Black Friday sale price and I’ve decided to leave them that way until I sort out the new listings. Grab them while you can, they will revert to their normal price sometime in the next week or so.

Are any of you having trouble with the “accept cookies” banner on the site? or is it just my laptop playing up? Let me know if you are so I can (try) and fix the Gremlins.


Are you going away for Christmas? Travelling to see loved ones?

We’re staying home again, the Covid situation is too risky with the added threat of quarantine costs. It will be a quiet Christmas (as long as our neighbour behaves haha). Take care happy quilters, talk to you soon, toni xx

  • I am with you on looking forward to being ready for the new year and more than willing to leave 2021 nightmares behind! Wonder if those saying “fused quilts are not real quilts” are the same bunch that have said machine quilting is not real quilting. If so, I guess I am not a “real quilter”, just someone who enjoys not making “real” quilts! What ever happened to being non-judgmental? A safe and Merry Christmas to you and all those you love!

  • +Toni – I hope you can sort your pattern related issues and then have a well earned rest…Will be interesting to see the new sew a long – although I loved this years…(not made of course . . but one day for a grand child)
    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
