Unable to attend the Australian Quilt Convention, I decided to assist with boosting the local economy, and visited two local businesses instead. First up was visit a local bricks and mortar shop, loving the display of fabrics, and assistance provided from the friendly, knowledgeable staff.
All photos are taken on my phone, did not think to put the camera in the car that day--so apologies for the poorer quality photos.
|Candy Bloom by Aussie designer Rosalie Quinlan|
|Lovely Softies, and also many fabrics from the Tilda fabric range|
|Pinwheels in a fresh spring palette.|
Kits available for this quilt.
|Vintage window display|
|Sew, Laugh, Love by Leanne Beasley|
|Pattern transferred, and able to be seen!|
I have been slowly doing a little stitchery some nights.
|Significant fading of the pattern transfer ---over a two week time frame|
I have ironed the piece of linen again with a hot dry iron, the markings have reappeared slightly, but still making it challenging to see the pattern.
I wonder if others have bought the kit with the markings already on the linen, or have transferred the pattern across to fabric.
Anyone out there with some handy hints for me ??
