Home from Malvern Show – Phew!!
We launched our new book Jelly Roll Sampler Quilts and it was incredibly well received - everyone seemed to really like it. The concept is different from our other jelly roll books and should take you one step further on your jelly roll path. We hope you like the sampler quilts we have made and we hope it will inspire you to make quilts from your own choice of blocks.
All the sampler quilts from our new book were being exhibited at the show plus all the quilts from Two from One Jelly Roll Quilts. It was great seeing them all together.
The show at Malvern was brilliant as always.
Everyone seems so happy and relaxed – it really is such a nice venue. Here is Liz chatting away to a customer. Liz used to be the manageress at The Quilt Room but left when she moved to Cornwall. Happily we live only an hour from each other now and when Nicky can't make a show Liz steps in and helps.
No one can say we don't treat ourselves!
When you are at a show and there are only two of you it is very difficult grabbing something to eat. Here is the lunch we had every day and not exactly served on a silver platter.
I have to tell you that it was delicious and finished off with home made biscuits which Liz provided it was fantastic. Liz gave me the recipe and I must give it to you as they were delicious. I know she won't mind and she assured me it was very easy:
1 cup each of demerera sugar, self-raising flour, porridge oats and desicatted coconut
1½ tablespoon golden syrup
1 teaspoon bicarb of soda mixed with 2 teaspoons of hot water
Melt margarine and syrup, mix into dry ingredients and bicarb of soda. Put teaspoons of mixture on to a greased baking sheet and bake for about 10-12 minutes at Oven No. 4 (170/180 degrees). Hope you enjoyed them as much as I did.
… and not to forget we are celebrating our 30th anniversay at The Quilt Room. Here are our calico bags and it was so nice to see lots of people at the show using them.
We also have our 30th anniversary rulers which are so handy. They are 2½in by 6½in – yes very jelly roll friendly. We are getting a bit low on them so do grab one at the next show if you want one. I think they are for sale on the web site as well but I had better check on that.
Now I am having a very leisurely day back in my lovely garden. Nick has mown all the lawns, my veggies are growing nicely and surprisingly I have one extra – very unexpected – Manx lamb bringing the number to…… 27.
