Quilts, Flowers, Bags and Bow Ties

At last I can show you what I’ve been up to!

The International Spring Quilt Market opens in Portland this week, May 17th -19th. This is a trade only show, so not open to the public but will showcase all of the up coming fabrics that will be available in the shops in a few months time.


As you can see I’ve been very busy designing and making goodies for the Newcastle Fabrics booth. This quilt is made mostly with the Styl Mod collections and was quilted by Shelly Pagliai. It will be on show in the Newcastle booth #1739


These flowers were also a joint effort, designed and finished by Hoodie. Although we’ve been crazy busy, I got to run riot in the stock room selecting the fabrics from across all of their ranges! Just feed my addiction!

My Spring Throw will also be making an appearance along with a few Christmas Stockings (still top secret I’m afraid) made in some fab new Christmas Wishes colourways.

Quilt Woman will be there selling patterns – including my  Slouchy Bag MMM-101 and Ray will be wearing his new bow tie!


The instructions on how to make this Bow Tie and the May Flowers will be posted on the Newcastle Fabrics blog  – in a sewing mood?

    The bowtie inspires me. My son loves ties, and I’d been thinking of making him some. Glad to see someone else has tackled them!

    The flowers are so neat! Love that you were generous with colors and patterns on them!

    Also, wanted to let you know that I nominated you for the Wonderful Team Player Readership Award. You may continue the chain, or just enjoy the nomination. Here are the Rules:

    Love your Styl Mod quilt, it’s really original and very striking, it reminds me of a weaving.

      Thanks Amy, it’s a modern interpretation of Seminole, much larger than the ribbons they used. I designed this specially for Newcastle Studio so the ” N ” motif became the castle ramparts. Glad you like it!
