or:
2nd prize:Set of 4 (Metric) fat quarters of Ice dyes (various colours)

All you need to do to be in to win is:

leave a message telling me which art quilter has inspired you most and why.

I will draw 2 lucky winners next Friday 8 February and these fabrics will magically "wing" their way to your letterbox!

All the fabrics are hand dyed by me on high quality pimatex cotton fabric and are colourfast.  All fat quarters are metric size which are slightly larger than a standard US fat quarter.

I look forward to hearing from you all! (if you are having trouble leaving a comment please email me on:

What to do with 409 yards of fabric?!

Today I received the 409 yards of PFD Fabric that I ordered from Robert Kaufman....yes 409 yards!

It seems like ages ago that I did anything creative or productive and I can't wait to get some dyeing done!

Not that I haven't been doing anything....

Christmas season is always busy with visitors and I also spent some time in New Zealand with my family.  My sister that lives in Mexico came to visit and I haven't seen her in 5 years so this was a good time to go home and catch up.

It was great to go home and experience summer in NZ - considerably cooler to the 32 degs celcius that we are used to in Singapore.....

My next post will be my 200th post so watch this space for something special!!!!

Happy Quilting
