Stitching News

I have a few wonderful projects to share with you...
A few months ago Shirley attended one of the Beginner Cushion workshops. She thoroughly enjoyed. A few Thursday classes later she had made a table runner. She was hooked! We heard we were going to be shut down so she purchased a book and a few Fat Quarters to keep her going for a few weeks! ha ha ha, well none of us expected this situation to last this long did we.

Months later... Shirley has finished her first ever quilt top, woop woop... She is a gardener too so, like many others, time has been used outside... tisk! Didn't she do well!! She has purchased the backing ready to make her first ever sandwich... watch this space.

Princess Jackie made an appointment and came shopping. She brought this quilt to choose borders and backing fabrics, of course I had to take pictures... the cutest bees!!! Some little details have had the faux Trapunto treatment and the embroidery detail is beautiful.

Jackie also brought in this absolutely amazing project. The colours are so bright and cheery. Jackie had started to make pieced blocks ages ago, with no real plan... during lock down  she was inspired to work on it. It is a fabulous and finished, absolutely beautiful quilt so... toot toot toot Jackie
Of course the back is fabulous and you can see all the quilting Jackie did. Just wonderful, thank you so much for bringing your quilt in to visit my photo step Jackie.

You surely can't have missed the latest news about Covid-19. 
I will continue to offer shopping appointments, it's all worked out well so far, good and safe!
Thank you for shopping in my wonderful, very well stocked and now Quite Tidy little Quilt Shop. 
You just need to call me 07807530441 
You can book appointments in advance and most of you are doing that, or just call me before setting off to come shopping and if I can help you, if I can let you in, I will.
Remember to use you very own loo before coming as my facilities are strictly NOT available for you... Where do you think I put all the stuff to make the shop look tidy!!! ha ha ha

I Spy Six Packs

In between offering excellent customer service in my shop, I've been cutting lots and lots of six inch strips of fabric to sub-cut them into 6 inch novelty squares. Each of the Six Packs contains 31 different fabrics making them perfect to play "I Spy". You only need 30 squares really but I like to put in one extra just so that you can have a spare. £15.95 per pack. With two packs you could make a pairs game! One pack for the quilt and one pack to make little quilted counters... that idea just came to me, genius?

 My Mum Gwynneth helped me sort them out ready to put in packets for you. Thank you Mum.

Stitching News

A couple of projects to show you. I'm finding the new Blogger system tricky to use. I'm hopeless with changes to computer stuff... could be an age thing? My head is rather full of fabric, projects waiting and colour choosing... so there's no room for learning technology, ha! I can't even get the writing to be the same size... there's no hope!

Linda succeeded with her quilt making marathon. As a teacher, she knew she only had her summer holiday do get it done and boy did she work hard on it. It's a Jelly Roll pattern, from one of the many books, but no Jelly Roll was used, Linda used yardage and cut up the 2 1/2" strips, all by her very own self. She was able to choose every fabrics and it worked out way more economical too.

And the back.... Taa daa Beautifully co-ordinated. So we can raise those trumpets, this is a fabulous finish so here we go... a toot toot toot fanfare for Linda... good luck with the getting back to school too. 

Farmer Lynda made a second Elizabeth Hartman Llama pattern project. This one is going to be a grand baby pushchair quilt. Lynda is going to add a lime green grunge strip to the top and the bottom before sandwiching and quilting... She will be keeping this one for her very own self!
There you go, I can only find these few pictures. I know I have taken more. They must be here in my computer somewhere, ha ha ha ... I''ll have to ask my Lilly to help me find them....

I have been trying to sort out the new Quilty Quarters... what a job!
A total pleasure and a blooming chore, both at the very same time.
These are a few of my hand dyed fabrics. It's ridiculous to have dyed so many fabrics when I avoid using them... so I am going to, use them all up that is... don't hold your breath though, I never said WHEN!!

If you are still here... Just to clarify about my shop... 
I am continuing to operate my appointments system with hand washing on arrival.
It is working very well. 
I am truly sorry if you have turned up without an appointment and you couldn't come in because someone else was shopping... We have to be safe. This is all I can do to keep us ALL safe. 
If no-one is in my shop, or due to come shopping, when you arrive without an appointment, of course I can let you in to browse. But pre-booked appointments will always get priority.

A Few Things To Note

It's a Bank Holiday Weekend, which always disrupts us.
I'm going to continue using appointments and virtual queuing to keep us all very safe.
Please call me, 07807530441.

Monday 31st Bank Holiday Closed.
September:- Tuesday 1st closed & Wednesday 2nd closed.

From Thursday 3rd.... open daily from 10am to 2pm, unless there are appointment outside of those hours.

Classes and workshops are still on hold and will not be happening in September. It is still not safe enough.
Any updates will be posted here on my blog.

Temptation Trolley or Rooting Rack

In between giving excellent customer service and keeping things as safe as I possibly can with my one person at a time virtual queuing system, I've been sorting. You know what that means don't you...
I can't find things!
The shelves are looking might tidy though it has to be said. Lots of the cardboard bolts had only a short piece of fabric on them so they have been added to the temptation trolley, except were so many that my little trolley was quite overwhelmed. I purchased an old fashioned rack, you know, for drying and airing clothes, it was just perfect, so I now have A Rooting Rack, I know, very cool and I should have remembered to take a picture for you eh!

I'm trialling bubbles in my shop. That means that IF you are from the same household or you have been bubbling with a friend or family member and you both wish to shop, two people can come in at the very same time. Please only do this if you are both shopping though... that doesn't sound good but the fewer people that do actually enter my shop, the safer we will all be.

There are a few items out on the tables with reduced prices, like quilt hangers. Just to clear a few little spaces.

It's time to be working on your Festive projects  (that's like Christmas stuff, but I was trying not to use the C word!!) I have had a good sort out in Christmas Corner. There are lots of festive panels for you to choose from, including Advent Calendars, large stocking panels and the ever popular, mini advent bunting stockings. 
Now it sounds like a shop advert so I'll stop... I will let you see for your very own self when you pop in.

Stitching News

 

Linda only came to my very own shop to get these fabrics about a week ago and already she was back to choose backing fabric and to get her wadding. The pattern is from one of Linda's Jelly Roll books, I think she's going to make every quilt in the books as she finds them very easy to follow.


Princess Jackie's quilts always leave me with a dropped jaw WOW!! they're stunning. She fussily cuts all the applique pieces so they have extra details. Jackie says it makes a blooming mess of your fabric though... funny shaped holes all over it! Toot toot toot for another fabulous and finished quilt.

This is the back, you can see all the quilting detail too. 

Yes, as you might have spotted, the photo step is still being used but with no-one to help hold the quilts up, they have to have floppy corners, ha ha ha better than no photo at all eh.

Blogger has changed a few things so I'm getting frustrated with it, I don't like change... because I am lazy I guess, I don't mind learning all sorts new and different things and methods in patchwork and quilting but I really hate learning how to use the computer stuff.

Social distancing, hand washing, face coverings, virtual queuing and appointments are still the way shopping is happening in my lovely and very well stocked shop.
I've been tidying, sorting, stock taking and re-arranging... a lot... I can't find anything now, ha!

The First Three Weeks... Quilty Quarters

This is something I was going to blog about at the end of April but I was so busy painting and grafting on my new Quilty Quarters that I forgot. I found these pictures in my perfect purple camera along with those in the last post. So, better late than never, I'm doing it now.
You will remember that lots of NHS staff were being called back to the front line at the beginning of our Covid 19 battle. I was out on Thursday evenings clapping tearfully with everyone giving our grateful thanks to our warriors.
A close family member to my Lilly, had worked for many years in ICU but had recently taken a career change to a different, calmer department. Obviously she too got called back to her old ICU department. Lilly relayed information to me, about how frightened all the staff were, worried not only for themselves but for everyone they know. It was so much more worrying hearing it from Lilly than from the news bulletins, and they were bad enough to watch... My applause seemed so empty, I was bursting to do something more.. 
If you are a quilter this might make sense to you... I really wanted to make a quilt to gift, to say a proper thank you. Obviously, I would never be able to make a quilt for every NHS member!! So my victim was chosen, I had a focus. and boy did I focus!! 
I asked my Lilly for a few details... floral or wacky? girly or bright? modern or traditional?... it's a bit more tricky when you are making a quilt for someone you feel connected to but you don't actually know much about them!
The answer... Quite girly, floral but loves lots of colours... I think this fit the brief!! 
I had one of my Floral Angie's Six Packs at home, they follow me up from my shop you know!!! and I had a Tilda Charm Pack (a sample of the fabric range) So I framed the 5" squares with a lovely, solid off-white to make them all up to 6"... the rest is a bit obvious

It took a couple of weeks from start to finish.
All day, every day... with nowhere to go, no-one to talk to.
No schedule to keep... lots of PMS (Pleasing My Self) it was quite easy really.

A mixture of Free Motion quilting and Walking Foot Ditch Hopping...
With hearts and loop-itty-loops...

The back.

The label with a little poem waiting to be stitched on.

A quick trip to the Post Office and my work was done. 
I felt so good making the quilt. I had to hope the lovely lady I was sending it to didn't think I was a bit weird for making a quilt... gifting her a home made quilt to say thank you for looking after people I don't know... it does sound strange now... but I loved making it and gifting it... I felt much better for having done it.
The lady received it a few days later, she loved it, she understood my why!... That's all that mattered in the end.

Stitching News

Over the weeks since my shop was allowed to re-open, I took a few photos, mainly with my phone, as we do these days.These photos though, were taken with my perfectly purple camera but my routine of blogging and picture taking has disappeared so I forgot all about the photos. I finally remembered to bring my camera home to look. 
Brenda Barbara had been busy using up her beautiful scraps. This is a great design for scraps. You can't beat a large, multi-fabric project can you? Unless you don't like playing with scraps, like our Beano. It's this pattern in much brighter and happier colours. Well done Brenda!

I know you have seen this quilt already, it was a floor photo shot. Now we get to give out a toot toot toot fanfare for All Day Di's William Morris prints quilt in it's full glory held up proudly from the photo step... 

This is the back so you get to see how Di quilted.
It's a fabulous finish Di, lovely binding corners too!

This lady came to buy backing fabric for this fabulous quilt top. The fabrics used are a mixture of American and British themes. She had such a lot of fabric left over that we came up with a plan for the back without purchasing any more fabric... yes I know I am a shop and I could have sold her 3 or more metres but she had enough left over fabric to make a pieced backing so that's what I advised, great customer service!!. 

Farmer Lynda finished and gifted her cushion already but I took this picture when she came in to buy the fabrics to make the Llama into a cushion. Such a smart fellow. Lynda's making another Llama now in different colours.

This is another of Our Pam's hospital gifting quilts. They have to be 24 inches in both directions for the unit Pam is supporting.  So we need a toot toot toot fanfare for a beautiful and fabulous finish.

And another from Our Pam. She's always super pleased with the quilts when she holds them up. Made with such care and genuine pleasure... Toot toot toot Pam... But, between you and I, she still has some huge projects on her back burner... Don't be thinking we have forgotten about your piles Pam!! h ha ha

I love this quilt. It is one of the best little projects I've seen using the Peter Rabbit Panel available in my very own shop. The customer used up stash scraps to make up the Half Square Triangle border. It's fabulous and finished, toot toot toot.

Shop Update

I will/should be in my shop from 10am until 2pm most days going forward.
I've decided to try virtual queuing alongside the appointment system.
That just requires you to call me before heading over to my shop to check on availability so I don't have people waiting outside for over an hour to come inside to choose your treasure.

I'm ready with my face coverings, are you?
This link will take you to an excellent pattern with instructions...
.This link will take you to a YouTube tutorial.

Obviously you can make appointments to shop for treasure outside of those hours, if I can be there for you, I will. 
You will still be greeted with a bowl of hot water and soap and you WILL need to wash your hands thoroughly before entering my wonderful and extreeeemly well stocked shop, wearing your mask of course.
Hope to see you all soon.

Fabulous And Finished

I'll be in my shop, tidying and pottering, most days now, just between 10am and 2pm. Unless you make an appointment out of those hours, which is allowed.
It's still very much easier if you book a shopping slot as it helps me to keep us all safe!
I've been doing order and collect from a table at the door too, quite strange!
Anyway, we are all in this together so we just have to do, what we have to do... 
Because It is, what It is!! (A regular Beano Quote.)
A while ago All Day Di purchased a Moda Charm pack in the William Morris designs and made a lovely quilt with it for gifting to a very special friend. The trouble was, Di didn't find it easy to part with the quilt! I know that feeling... so, the only way around the predicament was to make a very similar, and just as lovely, quilt all for her very own self to keep... This fabulous & Finished Fanfare is for that very quilt, The Keeper! Well done Di, toot toot toot

The Elizabeth Hartman Unicorn Quilt pattern is still making people very happy... we thought the Unicorns were a phase, like many others, but it looks like they are going to be popular for the long haul.
Yet another fabulous and finished quilt, toot toot toot.

Christabelle made this cushion. I think she made it for gifting but she sent me the picture so long ago that I have forgotten all the details, shocking! (feel free to message me Chris?) Anyway, toot toot toot , it's a fabulous, free-motion quilted and finish project.

Our Carol has been busy playing... she really enjoys playing with fabric, no shock there though as we all do. Carol has made fabric books before so she had a good idea of the end result...

The Makower Alphabet panel was perfect for making the pages... Yes!!! I have more in stock if you fancy making a fabric book like Carol's. Toot toot toot , it might not be a quilt but it's still a fabulous finish.

Farmer Lynda made this cushion. Once again it is an Elizabeth Hartman pattern. Lola. Very detailed instructions that can look a bit daunting, ask Lynda!!! A great success and a second cushion is already on the production line. Toot toot toot Lynda, another fabulous finish!

Rose absolutely loves Tweed fabric. She collects it while away on her travels (when she used to travel of course!!) It gets saved, I mean squirrel's it away, for special projects. Here is one special project. A beautifully made Lap Top wallet. I hope you have noticed the pattern is perfectly lined up. Toot toot toot Rose, a fabulous finish.



Poppy's Nan is the owner of this bright and beautiful quilt. She's been working on it for a good long time and was able to finish it during Lock-Down. Made with carefully selected solid fabrics from my very own shop, most are Moda Bella Solids or Pure Solids by Art Gallery Toot toot toot Janice, a stunning and fabulous.... and finished! project.

Good Morning!


Good Morning to you all.
Obviously it might not be the morning when you get round to reading this, but it's a sunny morning for me right now. This is a long over due blogpost but I have been busying with other things for a very long time.
Since the lockdown happened, some customers have continued to sew and have sent pictorial evidence to me via Whatsapp, I love Whatsapp, it's helped us all keep in touch.
Here are a few of the pictures to give you a little inspiration.

Nuttie has done loads of sewing and in between other projects, like dressmaking, she has continued working on her Crumbs and Mile-A-Minute blocks. All individually quilted and joined together apartment-ly

Jean Hill made a baby quilt.
I suspect it is finished now, it looks like there was just binding to be added.
Baby already arrived safe and well too.

Pam has really enjoyed making more gifting quilts for the hospital.
She's made many now and has quite a big pile.
Pam does love to make smaller projects.

Louise Merlot sent this picture.
The quilt top has been made with two of my Batik Six Packs
 48 carefully cut 6" squares, all ready to be stitched.

This is another of Pam's hospital quilt tops.
The design is one Pam has used many times, like a favourite!

Princess Jackie!! Wowser... She sent picture this to show that she had to make a quilt sandwich on her floor... Not too tricksy, until you try to get back up!!! Absolutely beautiful work, as always with Jackie.

Rose has started a new project and this is one of the blocks.
Isn't it clever how the placement of the fabrics makes it look woven... 

I have a tricky diary day today and all the available appointment slots are taken, but tomorrow... that's Tuesday 21st July, I will be in my shop from 10am until 2pm if you need anything to keep you sewing. Please call ahead if you plan to pop over for shopping, 07807530441... I'll have preparing to do, I need to keep you safe in my shop.

It's All Over!

Just a quick update, 
What a palava it is, moving home!!
You THINK you have everything in hand for a smooooooth transition! 
Oh yes!!!! Really??? Pfffft!
It's done now. I've moved home. 
I still have lots of stuff to find a place for / or to decide whether I really need to keep it.

At least I am back online. Computer wires have been located! 
Phone charger found too... Who put it in a bread crock with the kettle?
Quilty Quarters is looking rather bumble-sale-esque, ha ha ha.

I'm still taking bookings for shop visiting appointments.
Short notice is fine... If I am in the shop and no-one else is choosing or shopping, you can call me to book a quick 'pop in' appointment.

See you soon. x

My Lovely Shop

Week One was rather busy, thank you all for booking appointments and for shopping. 
I will continue with appointments only for another week and then I will review the situation again next weekend.

To enter my Lovely Shop, you must have a pre-booked appointment.
Feel free to call me 07807530441 to book a slot. 

If you only require wadding, or anything that does not need "Choosing Time" Click and Collect is possible so you won't need a shop entering appointment. 
Call 07807530441 or email your list to angiequilts@gmail.com 

How I plan to do it, and I will try to review the situation regularly...
Before your appointment, make sure you have been to your very own loo at home before coming/travelling to my shop. My Loo is not available for you to use.
When it is your turn to enter my lovely shop, you will wash your hands thoroughly.
You will then be able to do your shopping, keeping a safe distance from me!  

This is an added piece of information...
Please, please try not to touch anything you do not wish to purchase. Ask me and I will sort it out for you.

I suggest.....
Make a list of what you think you need. 1 Hour passes very quickly. 
I will not be touching your projects so you must do your very own measuring and calculating.
If you require wadding, you can order it to be cut ahead of your trip, give me the measurements when you book your slot so you don't have to wait for me to cut pieces from the big rolls.


I don't want to be sounding over dramatic but...
If this is all to tricky for me to be safe and to keep you safe, I will close my shop again for a little while until the Covid 19 situation improves.

Friday, 29 May 2020

Stitching News

Stitching News is a bit sparce these days, understandable though I suppose. 
We have to do, what we have to do! 
As Beano always says, "It is, What it is."
Norma wanted to make a baby quilt. She's had to dig into her very own home stash for the fabrics, as lots of you are doing. I bet you are all surprised by how much you can make with your stash!! Well done Norma, I'm very proud of you.

My Mum Gwynneth has a book filled with knitted toys.
They are very cute, this is a Topsy Turvy Doll

This is the other way up...
I know it's knitting but it is still stitching!!!
We have to craft with whatever we can.

Stitching of a different kind...  Face Masks,
The new normal?
They do look like bra cups though, ha ha ha

Lots of my customers are making face masks for their families and friends.
They are happy to be able to help out with their stitching.
I'm afraid my shop remains closed. I'm following the rules
I will let you know when I'm allowed to welcome customers back.
We have to be safe.

How Things Changed

As I've been out for my daily exercise and shopping for folk, I've noticed that loads of people have had a skip on their home frontage. It's evident that there has been a lot of garage and loft (attic) organising and clearing. That's a good use of time I think. Those are jobs that we tend to put off because of the enormity of the very thought of even starting the task... not to mention avoiding finding spiders!!
My loft is now all sorted... 
In a tin case I found, right near the smaller darker nooks... OK, so I'm lying to you now... really it was my son Mikie who was up in the scary place... I was catching stuff at the bottom of the ladder!
Anyway, in said tin I discovered my very own secondary school reports, amongst lots of other memories.
I had to laugh when I sat and read through them... I could apparently, have tried harder!!! 
My Needlework report was a hoot... How things have changed!



I sent pictures of my reports to a few of the ladies, apparently this very same teacher taught them in their teenage years too. It is a small world.

Stitching News

Some of the pictures sent to me by a few lovely customers. 

Rose made this little kiddie sized gifting quilt using all sorts from her very own stash. As you can see it is a fabulous and finished quilt so we can give out a well deserved toot toot toot fanfare. Baby already arrived and loves the quilt, of course.

New Sue finished her fabulous quilt top. It might look like a simple design but great skill was needed to line up all of the details... if you click on the image you will see tiny bits that have been beautifully lined up.... hoorah for pins!

New Sue made this cushion from her left over fabrics... A lovely thing to accompany the quilt. Fabulous and finished so , toot toot toot
Princess Jackie has been stitching... This was a wool fabric kit that some of the ladies purchased quite a while ago, I think from a Pilgrimage to the NEC Festival Of Quilts... it's good to see it being made up. Jackie says she needs supplies to continue. 


Lisa's Mum gifted her some fabric Fat Quarters so she made a little pouch to give back to her Mum. She's quite new to sewing but is proving to be quite a dab hand!! Toot toot toot for a fabulous finish Lisa.

Just before Lock Down we were able to sort out a little sewing machine swap-ery. All Day Di invested in a new Juki DX7 so Enid bought Di's Juki F600 and then Lisa was able to complete the chain by purchasing Enid's Janome, three very happy ladies, especially with time to play! And we need to give out a toot toot toot for Lisa's fabulous and finished new sewing machine mat!

Like lots of folk, Our Lou Lou has been enjoying a little outdoor in the garden time... not toiling with weeds though, just a little bit of crocheting... Toot toot toot for the finished square Lou, it is fabulous.

Sister Susie is impressing her very own self. She found this idea on the inter-web and set about making up the Half Square Triangles. All made from Susie's very own stash... a lovely twirly design.

Face masks, lots of ladies are making face masks. I'm sorry I can't remember who this picture came from, maybe Kate's Lynda? Anyway, we can still toot toot toot for them as they are finished and I'm sure fabulous too.

Jean Hill has been busy making 3D block blocks...
Tumbling Blocks in fact

Jean needed them for her latest baby gifting project, it really is a clever design, giving a 3D effect. Well done on the Y seams Jean.

My Mum Gwynneth has been making loads of face masks.
This is the best tutorial we found 
Video how to 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJmZFPY-4h8 
Pattern to print
 https://www.jukiclub.com/making-masks/
At the very same time, Mum's knitting a Topsy Turvy doll.

Nuttie Nutter is making matching sofa cushions with the Dresden Fan design. I'm guessing from the visual evidence that the fabrics are left over from turning up the curtains? Toot toot toot for the fabulous finish Nuttie
 
Finished in good time for gifting in September, Sister Susie is very pleased with her very own self... It's not often we get ahead with the gifting projects is it. Toot toot toot Susie, a fabulous finish.

Edna started to use up her stash of left over fabrics.
I recognise some of the bits from her past projects.
She got out her block book and made a good start.

But now she had a fall and broke her Humerus, that's not funny is it!! I couldn't help my very own self, ha ha ha... Wishing you a speedy recovery Edna. xx

Rose had a little pouch making marathon. Made from her very own home stash. All different shapes and sizes, aren't they handy, finished and fabulous!!Super gifts for the future. toot toot toot.

No sewing for me... But my beautiful and favourite, but rather worn out, Tunic has been a great painting outfit!
There's light at the end of our Corona tunnel... it's only a tiny pin head sized light, but at least it is there... Hope you are all safely stitching.
