News about a book...

...that I contributed to!

50 Fat Quarter Makes is now ready to pre-order from Amazon for delivery on the 25th June.

I am so excited to see this book (such a long time to wait!). It is by myself and another 10 contributors, including a few familiar names like Emily, Ali, Jesse and Louise.

I did the work for this last August and September - 5 different projects that I am really proud of, I can't wait to share these with you!!

Anyway seeing as I have NO SEWING to show you at the moment I thought it would be a good time to announce this. I have a house full of grown-up sons and my husband is recovering from a minor operation, which has all proved too distracting for me to get anything done.

I have spent most of the week loading new fabric on to the website (so boring!), at least I can show you some of this. We have lovely new stuff from Riley Blake (above), Camelot (top) and Robert Kaufman, including this gorgeous In The Bloom line from Valori Wells. I've put together a bundle with some coordinating Kona Solids. It's available in Fat Quarter and Fat Eighth versions.
Check out all our new fabrics here.

Right, I'm off to my sewing room now to start cutting these up and sewing them back together again!


  1. Thanks for the mention Jo! I had no idea it was available for pre-order now, woho! I hope you're husband's recovering well, it's never nice to see them uncomfortable is it. xx
