Blondedesign has more fun!


I am pleased to welcome Blondedesign as a new sponsor, Karen's shop is full of gorgeous goodies and I'm a huge fan of her beautiful binding. While I was pregnant I stitched this sewing case and used a gorgeous orange gingham bias binding. I've had a couple of attempts at making my own bias binding but I hate it and refuse to do it, I just choose from Karen's great selection.



Here's Karen to tell you a bit more:

Blondedesign-a stitch in time was started by myself Karen Gamble.  Dare I say I'm an Essex Gal.  For as long as I can remember, in my spare time, I quilt and sew. I had my first sewing machine from Santa at about 10 years old. My father was a tailor and my grandfather made bags from off cuts of Ford seat fabrics - recycling in the 60's! It’s in the blood!


I specialise in basics and stash builders - building blocks we all need! Growing every week with new fabrics coming in. I love to shop by colour, so that is my next move on menu systems. Who doesn't love a rainbow quilt?! I shall be changing my website in the next few weeks with renewed focus on solid, textured, and patterned 100% cotton quilting weight fabrics.


I have a terrible love for bias bindings, a bit of a passion of mine! Over 200 and still growing, sourced from Europe. Yes I know we can all make our own, as well as the quilts, but these save you time, money and heartache! Put it this way, I love to use them and only buy them if I do. Perfect for quilt edging, skirts, tea cosy, even lace edge ones, all those things that need an oomph and detailing.



Watch this space as more buttons should be arriving in the next week. More sizes, more choice, bags of buttons and well, just buttons!


Regular Offers:

For every Love Patchwork and Quilting Magazine that comes out I will choose a project, albeit one I want to make too! and do an offer for that month.
For example: This month a snowball quilt, throw size. The fabrics for the cover front would cost you £70.00 or more alone but I'm offering £60.00 - 15 x FQ and 1.75 m White, all Moda fabrics to make it but still a bargain even if you just stick the fabrics in your stash!



The same applies to a Mollie Makes Project. I will select one that may use FQs, fat 8ths etc. and upload an offer saving you money.

Also, coming soon, a monthly giveaway on my blog.

The website is easy to use, clean looking, with a great modern feel.I am still evolving my business so I am open to all feedback and what you want to see.


Pre-Christmas; Free Delivery!
