Nana's Flower Garden

Have you seen Nana's Flower Garden? This is our current fabric range by Andover Fabric. We are so happy with it and are enjoying sewing new designs with it. Our two new designs will be available soon. Each print in the range is named after a woman of significance in our lives.
Here are some quilts we have created in Nana's Flower Garden: Garibaldi - pattern coming soon
Oakville - pattern coming soon
Lufra House (available now)
The Hermitage (available now)

Cranbrook - Blazing Star

You know we both like to make a version of our quilts, but sometimes it takes a little longer than others!
Lisa made her Blazing Star quilt some years ago when we released our Cranbrook pattern.
When we received a bundle of @andoverfabrics #andovercollective range, I (Lou) knew just what to make.
This fantastic collaborative range has a print from each Andover designer. Our print is the "squiggly" line in blue and purple (you can see it in the star).
Loved making this and very happy how it turned out.

OOPS.... Walkers Dry Goods

OOPS! We found an error for the bag in our Walker's Dry Goods pattern.
On page 2 (bag back) the side border measurement should read 20 1/2" x 1 1/2" (not 18 1/2" x 1 1/2") and then on page 3 it should read "Add the 20 1/2" x 1 1/12" side borders to each side".

The amendment is for the side borders shown in pink above.
Please accept our apologies for the mistake.

January 2019

While Lou and her family were still holidaying in the USA, Lisa was creating with our Yarra Valley fabrics (together with some Nicholson Street shirtings and some fabrics from her stash).

Maree of Maree St Clair Quilts has made templates of our Andover free pattern Yarra River.
She sent us a set to play with...

 And our friend Jenny (Instagram: tossed_but_not_sunk), was starting on a new quilt. She makes stunning quilts using reproduction fabrics and others with original old fabrics.  This block has a cheddar from Yarra Valley and a shirting from Nicholson Street.  You can see more of what Jenny is up to on her Instagram page.

Meanwhile back in New York City Lou had a couple of meetings at Andover Fabrics.  More fun than work, Lou was seeing how fabric is created behind the scenes. It was fascinating.  Next time we will be there together!  This is the elevator door to Andover. So special it was worth a photo!

See you soon for Feb's catch up.
