New arrivals




































I am doing a swap involving block units made from Civil war reproductions and lights including shirtings. To my relief these "classc shirtings" arrived today though I may need more . . .
The enclosed leaflet is about the sort of panels used in medallion quilts. Early designs have been reproduced using the giclee process and can now be purchased. It was interesting to see the origins of the ones on sale, whether in private or public collections. I'm sure these meet a need. However I have ambitions to make a reproduction of an English frame quilt drawing on humbler examples - just a twinkle in my eye as yet.

Andover Fabrics are bringing out a new line soon with a John Hewson panel from the Winterthur Collection. I can't wait as a reproduction broderie perce quilt has been on my wish list for a while.
