Farmers Wife Quilt Work In Progress & Shop Hop Preparations!

Yesterday was our monthly Farmers Wife Quilt Class. I really really love this class. It's all that real, honest, old fashioned patchwork is all about.
Challenging little blocks.
Templates and  1/4 inch rules.
Patience and perseverance.
The journey not the destination.
I do love quick sewing, but my heart is firmly in old school patchwork.

What is fabulous about this class is that whilst the methods and techniques are hundreds of years old, the fabrics and interpretations of the patterns are fantastically modern. This post is just an explosion of full on colour. I love it!

We're working really hard behind the scenes to prepare for the Shop Hop on Friday and Saturday. We've been unrolling skinny bolts ( 2.5m or less left on the bolt) and bundling up these big pieces at £8/m into a rather fabulous wicker basket of fabric bargain beauty! Our Therapy Wednesday and tomorrows Therapy Thursday crowd are getting a sneak preview as we bustle about with towering piles of bolts in transit!

We will be opening up the sale baskets of fabric at 9.30am sharp on Friday (we'll be open for extended hours for the Shop Hop from 9.30am - 3pm on Friday and 10am - 4pm on Saturday). Get in early for a bargain!
