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.

Ssshh, promise not to tell - here's a sneak peak of something truly special which is coming to Honeybee Cloths in a few months time....

Lullaby by Kate and Birdie (Moda Fabric) is one of the sweetest collections of quilting cottons in pretty aqua, peach and soft grey. It's due in store August 2016, and I'll be dreaming of Lullaby and the lovely things that will be made from it, from now till then, that's for sure :)

Pre-cuts, bundles and yardage will be available, including these sweet little baby birds perched on a branch next to Mum - Lullaby No.13152-11

Fresh, pretty springtime blossom in soft white, aqua and grey - Lullaby No.13150-14

Darling little bunnies, hedgehogs and foxes - a lovely print for making cot quilts and quilts for little people - Lullaby No.13151-11 (also available in aqua background)

There's some gorgeous versatile neutrals, like the Quilted print - Lullaby No. 13155-12 and little cross stitches print (I guess they could be kisses too) on linen effect stone coloured background - Lullaby No.13157-12

These little half moons and stars on a linen effect background, just perfect for making cot quilts and quilts for little people.

If you'd like us to keep you posted and let you know when Lullaby is in store, please email using the Contact form, typing "Lullaby" in the subject line. Or if you'd like to reserve pre-cuts, please email and we'll pop them to one side - we don't charge a deposit to reserve items :)
