beautiful, beautiful quilt both the back and front....I have heard about this quilt lite where do I get some
where do you live Adele? you should be able to get Quilt-lite in most Australian patchwork shops - ask for it...
I live in Maryborough in Queensland.....I have asked but I just got a dazed look from the lady behind the counter. Might go do a few Brisbane stores when I go there next :)
I'm in the US and am very interested in this batting - do you know a brand name or a mail order source? Seriously love your quilts.
Hi Gretchen, the product is called Vilene Quiltlite. It was traditionally used as a facing in men's suiting - in the jacket front. It looks like a loosely woven flannel. I'll take a picture and post it. It's 100% cotton and drapes beautifully. Also good if you have arthritis as it is quite thin and very easy to quilt.
Hi Brigitte,I just got your book and was making templates for the "dancing dollies", but can't find the star D (like a seastar)and the heart anywhere. Did I miss something?Greetings from Holland, Inez
Under Tips & Instructions, at top of page, you will find the download for star and heart along with a correction for pattern piece J.
Hi Brigitte,Where do you buy all the beautiful vintage fabrics you use? I am based in London UK and also regularly visit my sister who lives in the South of France. I am just wondering whether you have any tips for where to look for vintage fabric, or know of any good websites or shops where I can buy some.Loving the book, it is such a joy.Best wishes Anna
Hello Anna,My vintage fabrics come from flea markets in the south of France as well as antique shops. I sometimes buy on the Internet too. It's a collection spanning some 20 years. There are usually only a couple of really old fabrics in each quilt (sometimes none) most are just 'old' looking. I buy new fabrics mostly from local quilt shops in Australia. Sometimes you can pick up vintage fabrics in op shops too...B
Do you need to cut off the selvedges when you join quilt lite?
ask me a question about a quilt or make a comment....
