It is cool to be square!
Patchwork is a crafting technique that involves the sewing together of smaller pieces of fabric to make a larger design. It is often used to make quilts with the squares making a lovely pattern.
Our blocks are perfect for making patchwork designs, and if you dye your fabrics beforehand you will be able to create some beautiful unique squares. We have an excellent video showing how you can use our blocks to make a lovely patchwork quilt.
We also have loads of different pictures of patchwork quilts we have made so why not take a look at them and we hope they give you some inspiration.
Be an Early Bird and catch these beauties. If you love birds, this is the block printing set for you! Click here to see some ideas of what you can design.

This is a wonderful, luxury tour of Northern India taking in some amazing sites and places. It is a 15 day trip which starts in Delhi before moving on to Jaipur, Agra, where we will visit the stunning Taj Mahal before moving on the Lucknow and Varanasi before returning to Delhi and then home.

In addition to the well known places we will be visiting, we will also be taking in lots of other beautiful Villages, Gardens and even Palaces in these 15 days. We have called this trip a Treasure Hunt, but in truth you wont have to search very hard to find the treasures as they will just appear in front of you fay after day.

New printing techniques in our shop.
We have been adding to the stock we have in our shop and have found these lovely Moulding Mats. These rubber mats will enable you to put some super background patterns onto the fabrics you use for crafting which will be perfect to enhance the designs you create.
You can see all of the moulding mats we have as well as all of our other new items in the Latest Arrivals section of our website.
New styles of stencils
We have sourced some lovely new stencil designs for you including this lovely Americana Finch. Use the smallest amount of paint when you use these stencils as a little really does go a long way and it will also prolong the life of the stencil if you use a smaller amount of paint.
Check out all the stencils we have available here.
