This is the link to join us on June 29th, 2024.

Details are in our Instagram & Facebook

We are excited to announce that the Quilt In for Cancer is back!! This time, though bookings will be different.

Please read carefully...

🎗The bookings will be open on Thursday, 28th March, at 7pm, on Eventbrite.

🎗This will give enough notice for everyone to get together in their groups to book in all at once. You may nominate one person then to send your payment too, and they can book. Remember to let them know your food allergies (not dislikes. We do our best to cater for all)

🎗It's at the Lilydale Baptist Church again. Lunch and snacks will be provided.

🎗This is a sit and hand sew day.

🎗There will be raffles, items for sale, like last time, and some retail therapy.

🎗You'll also receive a gift bag with surprises in it!!!

🎗 This is a "fund-raising day" for the Cancer Council and Shitbox Rallies.

🎗 The cost will be $80 all inclusive

NOTE, no bookings will be taken prior the 28th March to keep it fair for all.
We can't wait to have a great day, like last year. We thank everyone for their support.
Let's help find a cure for all cancers!

Merry Makers 2023

We are excited to join with some of our fellow Andover designers to create a wonderful (free) quilt project for you.

Watch our Instagram for details. 
Every couple of days we will show you a 12" finished (12 1/2" unfinished) quilt block from one of our fellow designers coloured in our Andover fabrics. 
We will give you their details so you can see their original block and download the instructions to sew along side us. 
Our fellow Merry Makers are:

We hope you'll have a little fun with us? No pressure, no rules, just some quilters from accross the globe, sharing our love of quilts. 

Once we have each released our blocks, on December 15th, we will have some setting options for you. 
We would love to see your blocks, please use the hashtag: #merrymakers2023 
Click on the link at the end of the email for our PDF instructions (if the link doesn't work, please email us). 
 Be sure to print our PDF pattern at custom scale 100%.

We are very pleased to show you our latest design, Allerton.
We have made our quilts, featuring our most recent fabric range, Sienna, by Andover Fabrics. 
Lisa has used a mix of our fabrics from previous ranges with Sienna fabrics.  Lou has only used the Sienna range.
This gorgeous quilt features applique and pieced blocks, and is a perfect scrappy quilt.

Lisa's quilt on the left, Lou's on the right.

Bertie has to be in on the action!

Lou's garden had some lovely spring colour.

We do hope you like Allerton,

 Sienna - some quilts to inspire you....

We have received some truly wonderful feedback for Sienna.  

Thank you.

We would like to show you a couple of our designs coloured with Sienna fabrics.  Have a look at the designs on the right side of the blog, to see the quilts as we made them originally. 

This is Sovereign:

This is Betty's Medallion:

We are busily stitching a new design featuring Sienna (and in Lisa's case, some of our other fabrics too).  We should have them ready to show you soon.

                Happy Sewing,

We are so happy to show you Sienna.  

Our latest range of fabrics by Andover Fabrics is arriving at 

your local patchwork store in June 2023.

Sienna is Lisa’s grand-daughter and she is as sweet as the prints in our Sienna line. The main whimsical floral print is a reproduction of an antique document piece and the coordinating prints in soft colours will create beautiful quilts. We hope you love a little old world charm in Sienna...

Trailing Flowers

Lattice Posy

Floral Stripe



We will have some quilts to show you very soon, as well as a 
new design we are making featuring our Sienna fabrics.

Happy sewing,

Lisa & Lou
