A very happy New Year to you and yours - hope it is is filled with sunshine, smiles and sweet moments x x


New year really is a time of fresh possibilities and I'm so happy and excited to be sharing this - It's been over 4 months in the making, a really long time when you've been itching to stitch :)


Beginning mid-January, and running over 12 months, our new Quilt-along - the Sweetest things Sampler celebrates the little things which make our lives sweeter.



I'm so thrilled that my lovely friend and fellow quilter Michelle of CreativeBlonde is returning to our blog, to co-host our quilt-along. Appropriately, the very first block relates to something which makes life a whole lot sweeter - Friendship and cherishing every moment.


Every month from February onwards a new Sampler block will be posted on the blog, (or if you prefer you can subscribe to receive the PDF document emailed direct to your Inbox - simply type Sweetest Thing Sampler into the subject line of the Contact form, together with your email.)

To complete the quilt , the Sampler blocks will be combined with Irish Chain blocks to make a quilt top approx 50" x 50" without borders (or 60" x 60" with borders.)


We would love to see the blocks you make, and hear about the things which make your lives sweeter too.Throughout the Quiltalong there will be Giveaways of sewing Goodies, to enter simply follow our Instagrams Honeybee Cloths and CreativeBlonde, and post a photo of your block on Instagram, using the hashtag #sweetestthingssampler.


The materials we'll be using for our Sweetest Things Sampler are from Brenda Riddle collections for Moda Fabrics, including Brenda's newest collection Caroline, due in Honeybee Cloths store in two weeks time.



Brenda Riddle's collections are some of the prettiest cottons we've seen, and were the inspiration for our Sweetest Things Sampler Quilt. The Sampler blocks themselves make use of small quantities e.g. Fat Eighths - so if you have a stashful of pretty quitling cottons in need of a good home, this Sampler is for them too.


Our next post in mid January focuses a bit more on fabric requirements for background and Irish Chain blocks.


Till then wishing you lots of sweet cosy moments.

Earlier in the month a huge delivery of Moda made our day. It included Kindred Spirits - a very special collection of quilting cottons and sewing patterns, by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs.



Kindred Spirits is especially close to our hearts, with proceeds from this collection being donated by Moda to Cancer Care charities, and by Honeybee Cloths to Macmillan Cancer Support.


Anne of Bunny Hill Designs tells of how "the Kindred Spirit fabric was a joy to design. It’s a celebration of life and a testament to women who have fought Breast Cancer. It’s dedicated to my daughter-in-law Diana, my mother, my sister and to all women who have taken this journey.


As well as lovely Layer cakes, jelly rolls, charms and yardage, it includes petite patterns, which can be made quickly ....



(a whole batch of these gorgeous little pooches, can be made in an afternoon, perfect for making to sell for fundraising.)


and bigger projects too, including this stunning quilt....


(The original quilt, Merci La Vie (French for Thank you for Life) was lovingly hand appliquéed by a special group of women who have had breast cancer, and will be donated to the American Cancer Society. - Anne Sutton)


The pattern for Merci La Vie includes all the applique templates shown - a really lovely project for the winter months.


Incidentally, this Friday 25th September happens to be the World's Biggest Coffee Morning, it's an opportunity to get together over a cuppa and a cake to help raise funds for cancer support.

Have a lovely weekend x X
