Old Courthouse 1890

We are so very happy to be able to show you our newest design.
Old Courthouse is our newest quilt measuring approx 51" square. Super easy to make bigger by making more blocks. The maths for the setting triangles stays the same.
We love it and hope you do too!  We had great feedback from quilters at the Everything Patchwork and Quilting show at Gembrook on Saturday.  Thanks so much to all of you for popping over and chatting too.  
Oh and did we mention ......there is NO CURVED PIECING involved.

Our photo shoot was at the site of the original Healesville Courthouse at 42 Harker Street, Healesville which was built 1889 to 1890.
Old Courthouse 1890
Introducing our newest design Old Courthouse 1890. We have taken some of our favorite blocks and set them in circles but NO curved piecing!!  You may make this quilt as big as you like, just make multiple blocks or add more of your favorite feature fabrics! great scrappy quilt, which we love love. Give your local stockist a call and if they don't have it yet, they will soon!! Happy stitching folks.
Lisa & Lou.

New Patterns.
Hello on this very windy day today. We have 2 new Small Treasures patterns that will be in stores in the next week. They are:

Furmston Lane

This small quilt is inspired by the Antique Basket Quilt. We just popped all the flowers in one basket!
Would also be a great center for a larger quilt.


This sweet table topper, crib quilt or wall hanging is a true charm quilt with not one repeating fabric in our sample! again you may keep making more blocks to make your quilt as large as you like. 

Contact your local quilt shop to purchase any of our designs.

We will also be having a stall at the the Everything Patchwork show in Gembrook on Saturday 2nd September 2017. drop by and see us!!
Have a great day.

Circa 1903
Circa 1903 is a large quilt. The blocks can be hand (or machine pieced) and English Paper Pieced. 
Circa 1903 features an original block design and machine pieced borders. .
Acrylic templates are included with all patterns.  You also have the option of buying the pattern with papers for EPP and the templates.
A wonderful large quilt with great opportunities to fussy cut your fabrics.
For those of you trying to guess.... Lisa's version has the brown and pink sashings and Lou's has the dark background fabric.


Eadie is the collection of projects.  An applique quilt, lap or wall quilt (which can be made bigger) a small candle mat (great gift size project) and a table runner.
Hand or machine piecing, EPP and applique.....something for everyone!

Marna is the fourth project in Max & Louise Pattern Co’s Small Treasures series.  
We have used civil was reproduction fabrics appliqued onto linen.  It is a table runner.  It would look fantastic in any fabrics including modern/contemporary fabrics or wool felt.


Beverley is the fifth project in Max & Louise Pattern Co’s Small Treasures series.  
We have used civil was reproduction fabrics.  It is a doll sized quilt/wall hanging.  It would look fantastic in any fabrics including modern/contemporary fabrics.

Ryrie is the third project in Max & Louise Pattern Co’s Small Treasures series.  
We have used civil was reproduction fabrics.  It is a small hand pieced or machine pieced doll size quilt. A perfect introduction to hand piecing. It would look fantastic in any fabrics including modern/contemporary fabrics.
