Nikki Tervo's buttons as source of inspiration

Needlecase Lighthouse
Needlecase inside

The needle case has a Lighthouse of porcelane at the front and a lighthouse of fabric at the back. Behind the boats inside is room for yarn.

Litle Teapots quilt

Since two months the Cottage Pot at the back of the shop is renamed into The Hollandse Pot.

All ornaments are white and blue like Delft porcelane. You will find here the little Teapots quilt.

Do you like Nikki's buttons?

Nikki Tervi Designs
 Nikki Tervo paints porcelane buttons. During our visit to Australia she showed us her workshop. And her buttons taste like having more.

Quiltshop 100 rozen sells the buttons shown at the blue woolfelt.

The first little quilt in store is made with 3 buttons. Two other buttons were painted as a test by Jeltje at Nikki's workshop.
The next one a needle case has the lighthouse on top of it. I will show you these two results in the next blog.

Kaffe Fassett Quilts in Sweden, Sunlight in the Forest, in Sydney

Quiltsmith is located in Annandale, Sydney. During our first visit to this shop, with Sarah Fielke, we bought The Kaffe Fassett Quilts in Sweden book.
The quilts in this book are again gorgious. The last day before we left for Hobart, Tasmania, we went to Quiltsmith again.

And yes, there was the most beautiful quilt Sunlight in the Forest Quilt from Quilts in Sweden hanging in front of us. How could we miss the quilt the first time? Too busy talking?

Nope, during our first visit Quiltsmith had another quilt on the spotlights. See picture below.
Thanks to internet, Skype and Henk, the kits are ready to order now via

Faeries in My Garden, so beautiful

At wednesday after a long drive we found a small path towards the backgarden of Lesley Mc Connell. The shop is called Faeries in my Garden. Don't know how to say it.. but it was fabulous what we saw.

The pattern of The Gentle Seamstress is in our luggage and also some fat quarters from Lesleys Store. During our flights I kept on stitching and hoop to show you the first Gentle Seamstress example at the Aussie Trunk show at 7 september at 19:30 hours p.m.

If you like this kit, please send een e-mail to jeltje@quiltshop100rozen.nl and we will inform you about the ordering of this kit with a Dutch translation.

Precious time in Toowoomba

Yes we had a precious time in the quiltshop 'Precious Time'. Liza Zimmerman owns the shop and she gave us room to make pictures. Also Lorna showed her finished top 'Bordered Diamonds' made from Kaffe Fassett fabrics.

Do you like the quilt   at the second photo? We will bring the pattern with us.
Magda had fun buying fabrics and I got some Cabbage Patch Green from Liza's own stack. Thank you Liza, very generous for you.
Today we will visit Crows Nest.

Highfields, The Village Green Complex

At Abby Lane, an old church turned into a Country Craft Shop, we found doyllies reused to make a little dress.
After a coffee and of course tasting some cheesecakes we went on to The Quilters Angel.

The Quilters Angel is situated at paddock with others nice shops.
We made pictures of the beautiful veranda of The Quilters Angels and had a chat with Marion Marshall,proprietor.

Location: The Quilters Angel
The Village Green Complex, started by Hazel Putman, she became 95 years old.

At the end of the day Magda made us dinner with Indonesian bami. There were a lot of women in the kitchen. Who is in control this time? Marjorie, Ingrid or Magda?

The bottom of the Japanese bag

Now and then our customers need more info to finish a kit. These instructions are for the closing of the Janapese bag. First quilt the bag staying 2 cm away from the seam allowance. Than proceed here.
Put the bag in front of you at the table folding the points above the other two points. (See pictures left and right.)
Than pin the seam allowances of almost all layers except the top one together. Fold back the last seem allowance. (See picture on the left.)
Stitch two seams and check the seams. It should look like the picture on the right of this text.
On the pictures below the bag is photographed from the bottom (inside out). The two horizontal seams are the ones we just stitched.
Now comes the long seam. It goes from the bottom towards the top of the bag in a diagonal direction. Pin this long seam, again without the top layer, and stitch it.
Seam the top layer by hand so you can hide it all. Job done.

Basting at QUIP day

This spring we had two Baltimore Ć  la Kim McLean groups. The pictures below are from the quilt by Anja. She did the basting of her quilt together with Kety at QUIP day.

In August and September we start with three brand new groups. If you love this type of quilt as much as we do, you will get even more enthusiastic during the course. You will learn four techniques for applique: the old way, the easy way, a new way and the strip way.
The original quilt is 2x2 meters. If you prefer to make a little quilt, this pattern is also beautiful as a quilt of 0,7x0,7 meter or 1x1 meter. Want to be one of the participants in autumn? Click here.
