Thank you for your wonderful trunk show on Saturday for our Sunbury group at the lovely Bulla hall.
I was very taken…adored the pieces of vintage fabrics you kindly donated for prizes. In particular the little the small postage stamp pieces of a quilt, in the softest of colors. I wasn’t fortunate to be a winner.
So I am inquiring if you have any the same for sale. I have been seeking something similar for a project l have been waiting to make, for our grandaughter.
I was the lady who spoke re the ‘hot air balloon’ hanging for the nursery, like your daughters for your grandson.
Thank you once again…your quilts were very loved by us all.

Thank you for your kind remarks, I am very glad you all enjoyed seeing the quilts and listening to their stories.
It is always a pleasure to visit Sunbury Quilters. I will email you in regards to the cutter quilt pieces.
Enjoy your quilting, Janette

Hi, I am wondering if you have any advise on an issue I am having. I have a client who would like me to complete a hand pieced quilt. We are going to complete it as a summer quilt so I am looking for old fabric to use for the back of this quilt. I am aware that I could tea or coffee stain newer fabric to give it an old look. But I am more concerned with the feel of the fabric on the back and don’t want it to feel too new or crisp. Are there any ideas you could provide for me so I can get this project off the ground?

Thank you for your interest. There are many ways you can approach reproducing the look of an old quilt. The majority of old quilts had plain homespun backing in either a cream or white colour. The plain fabrics also show up the hand quilting nicely. You could also look on Ebay for vintage fabrics such as feed sacks or yardage of older fabrics. There are also many beautiful reproduction fabrics available at quilt shops.
Hope this is helpful and good luck with your project. Happy stitching, Janette
