Blog Notifications?

Do you receive my Blog Posts in your email?  The system that provides this service is going away soon. Unfortunately I haven't found a suitable replacement.

If you'd like to keep in touch with my 'doings' I send an 'occasional' newsletter where I talk about quilty stuff. 

I invite you to subscribe - it is easy, secure and I never share my list. I also don't inundate you with emails. I send my newsletter about twice a month.

You will also receive a Free Pattern Download when you subscribe (plus another helpful instruction sheet with some 'good math for quilters!).

Just enter your email on the right side of this Post - simple, quick and secure!

Another will be first to know about new patterns and special offers that I only share in the Newsletter. 

Hope to see you there!

Hand Painted Batiks - AMAZING!

Have you seen batiks with such a wide range of colours that you wonder how in the world it is done? How DO they get those flowers onto this cloth?

Check out this video showing how the upcoming Flower Power fabrics from Banyan Batiks are made. So interesting to see all the steps involved to achieve this unique collection.

You can see all the different Flower Power fabrics (and tonal coordinates) here:

Love these? Tell your local quilt shop they can order Flower Power from Banyan Batiks! 

I already have a few quilt designs I want to make with these. 

Or a summer top or skirt would be great too since these will be in stores next June!

We're MOVING!....So the SALE is ON!

 I hope you and your family and friends are safe and well.

Our family are managing well. My husband worked from home for several months and is now back at his office, following all social distancing protocols. Both my daughter and son and their families are doing very well too. For all of this I am very thankful!

You saw the 'headline' for this Blog Post, right? 'We're Moving!'

No, not moving our home, fortunately. But the Patchworks Studio website is moving. My hosting company is closing (due to non-Covid reasons) so I have to move to another option. To make this more simple....
