Honey Bee Bears

Hey lovelies, how are you all this weekend? We’ve had some glorious rain and storms. The plants and wildlife are happy and so are we. Rem and Spud have been sulking, neither like thundery rain!

This week we’ve put together the prize packs for the 2020 Paper Doll BOM. A big thank you to the lovelies at Thermoweb for their ongoing support. I’ve used HeatnBond Lite fusible webbing for about seven years now and I can genuinely recommend their products.

We’ve updated the Honey Bee Bears pattern to the new format and have given it a fabric makeover. It’s the last of the available patterns to be updated and it’s slightly bigger than the old version.

Over the years I’ve had so many emails requesting the 16-patch blocks be square rather than rectangular so I’ve changed it to suit. This has made the quilt a couple of inches bigger than the old version. What can I say, I went through a rectangle phase years ago LoL.

Both the PDF and printed Honey Bee Bear patterns are on special in our Etsy store this week – 50% off the PDF pattern and 20% off the printed pattern which includes postage.

I’ve also included a star template for the border if you prefer. As always, email me at redbootquilts@bigpond.com if you would like an update to your pattern. Proof of purchase is required.

We’ve been working on getting a Speedy Racer pattern ready for upload to Etsy. The original Speedy Racers quilt is in the Happy Quilts book and this will be the second quilt in the racer series. I’ll let you know when it’s finished.

Have a fantastic week everyone, we have a huge week or two ahead of us and I’m stressing about it before it begins. January is one of those months don’t you think? Take care and happy quilting, toni xx

Happy Everything

I heard a guy on TV say that to someone in parting… instead of goodbye, he said ‘happy everything’. I thought it was pretty cool.

I wanted to check in today and say ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ to everyone. We don’t do anything special, my kids asked me what I wanted and I said a French cheesecake. I may have eaten far too much… a slice for breakfast, morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea LOL. I hope you had a lovely day with your family. Extra hugs for those of you who do it tough today. I know a lot of you do.

We have a fabulous Mother’s Day giveaway here.

Mothers-Day-GiveawayAmazon has my Happy Quilts book on super special at the moment. It’s as cheap as chips so pop on over and grab a copy before they’re all gone. I’m not sure whether the publisher will do a reprint – as far as I know, once they’re gone, they’re gone. It’s great value for money with (20) patterns included. If you don’t have a CD reader in your computer never fear toni is here. Message me and I’ll send you the PDF’s via email (with proof of purchase of course).

I’m off to the supermarket to find something for dinner. After 30 years I’ve run out of ideas. Whatever happened to that space age idea of the meal-in-a-pill? I could always have cheesecake ha!

Happy everything lovelies, toni xx
