Marcia Layton Designs - Quilts for Kids

At the end of last year I reported to you that during my visit to Houston Quilt Festival, I fell in love, head over heels, with MARCIA LAYTON'S quilts for kids.  Why?  Because they were refreshingly different, not gimmicky, but three-dimensional in a quirky way using Yo-Yos made with Clover's Yo-Yo Makers.

When I added them to my website, I had several customers comment that they couldn't see the detail enough to see what I was raving on about. Marcia has so generously given me a Trunk Show for the Show Circuit in Australia during 2014; so yesterday I hung them on my back verandah clothesline and photographed them for you, even though the day was dull, but no grizzling here as we received some much needed rain.

Please enjoy and marvel with the detail.  Her ideas are adorable and will delight any child, made with love by Mum, Grandma or Aunty! (You don't have to be a child to have one either)

Now, you have to admit, indeed delightful, are they not?
I hope you now appreciate my excitement in being able to present these patterns to you.

SEE THEM AT THE AQC, MELBOURNE next week on our Stand 111

I will also have an International Guest from Janome America 
demonstrating the SILHOUETTE CAMEO 
which is an electronic cutting tool that connects to your home computer just like a printer.
An AMAZING machine.
