Over the past eight weeks we've been hosting fourteen new (and not so new) quilters in the Skill Builder for Beginners and Beyond classes by Jules McMahon of Procrasticraft. The night and day classes have seen these women grow in confidence and skill and the quilts they've produced are nothing short of remarkable. 

Here is a sample of the works to have come through:

Tumbler Time

Addicted To Fabric - Wednesday, December 10, 2014

We have been inspired by all the vibrancy and hot summer colours of the Japanese quilting linens and cottons we have in store and so have made up our ever-popular tumbler quilt in new fabrics. 

Using prints and solids from (among others) Echino, Moda and Lecien, we now have on offer kits for this stunning quilt - and there is a variety of background colours including orange (pictured), blue, green, purple and mustard. 

The finished quilt measures 79" x 92" (201cm x 234cm).
