I am back again - sorry it has been a while.
I have spent the last week or so sewing row four onto my Patchwork
of the Crosses quilt. I was surprised how long it took.

I did have to make one more new block as all the ones I had 
made were too blue.

The blue one will fit nicely in one of the next rows so that is no problem.
Now I can make some more blocks which is always the exciting part.

This week is going to be busy as I am Merchant at the Yoko Saito Classes
in Auckland and in Taupo. Yoko will be in the shop on Tuesday morning 
signing books so that will be cool.

Then we have an exhibition at the school that I have been working 
in on Tuesday afternoon. I am so looking forward to seeing all their
quilts hanging. 

So I should be back soon with photos of both events.

Wool Blanket Cushion

This is a new shop sample - a cushion basically made from an
old woollen blanket and linen/cotton background.

We will be getting the kitsets for this finish off during the week.

This is the back.

Back soon, Robyn

POTC A Great Week

This is week has been very productive.
I have got four of my Patchwork of the Crosses blocks completed.
Last week I had got them all planned, cut out and put in individual bags ready 
for stitching. This has actually worked well.

I think I will continue to work this way. 

So here they are.

This one is a bit different as it has no feature fabric to 'fussy cut' - just  a 
set of small prints. I guess this is fine - it must have been the last one that 
I planned that night!

Cindy gave me this centre fabric and look how cool it looks.

This centre fabric is new into the shop and I love it. It is such a good stripe.
More of this is coming in the next set of  blocks.

And finally another one based around Barbara Brackman's William
Morris inspired collection.

Back soon with some new shop samples finished recently.
