These are just so cute! They are pre-printed panels that are in flannel fabric. They are so cute and cuddly and would be perfect for a little person for the winter! They come in blue and pink and also come with a great range of flannel fabrics that match too!
The panels are $22.40 and the other fabrics are $28.00 per meter.

We have got a Scrap Saver class coming up on the 26th of June. We still have spaces available so if you would like to book for this class you can email us at email@example.com or give us a call on 07 8473692.
We have done this class a few times now and proven very popular! It uses roughly 3 meters of scraps (we have done our scraps as black and white) and then a consistent colour to work with it. Jelly rolls can also be used as your scraps, however a jelly roll is only equal to 2 1/2 meters of fabric so a few more scraps will be needed. It has been done it so many different colour combinations in the past classes and they all looks fabulous!
The class fee is $65.00 and is from 9.30am to 4.00pm.
Most of the students in previous classes have got most of the top done in just this one day.

After a quick baby/toddler present? These soft fabric books will fix that problem. They come as a panel and the instructions to make them. They are really easy to make and VERY quick to whip up! The panels are $21.00 each.
There are two different kinds of books in. We have a fish one, which is about counting fish under the sea, and one called High, low,fast, slow, which is about opposites.

We have just got this book in by Gloria Loughman called Quilted Symphony.
We were lucky enough to have Gloria come and teach a two-day workshop at the shop last year. The classed was based on this book and all the students were told about this book so we are all very excited that we now have our little hands on them! She does really unique techniques that work so well with this sort of work. This book is very well explained and has a lot of really good and helpful information, not to mention awesome photography and pictures of students work ( our class just missed out on the cut off date for her book so we didn’t get in it). We have got in a few copies however they are going very quickly.

Here at Donna’s Quilt Studio we have got a new little addition in our family. Her name is Kandy Kitty. She is a stuffed cat made of FLANNEL, well it could be made in plain cottons aswell but it’s terribly snugly in flannel. We have patterns available to make your own Kandy Kitty. We will also be putting out kitsets including everything to make her. She is just adorable and we know you would love to have one at your home too!
Pattern is $20.00 and Kitsets are yet to be priced.

On Sunday just been we had a group of girls that came to sew with us for a couple of hours in celebration of one of their birthdays. They all, (including us) had a really good time and heaps of fun was had. They all made a little wheat froggy but this time we made them in flannels. Most of them had only done a little bit of sewing at school.They all did a really good job and all went home with a FINISHED froggy friend!

This is a one of our very popular patterns called Nesting by Me and My Sister Designs. However we have made it into a modern looking Eye Spy quilt. We have got kits made in this exact colour way. This is more of a boys quilt as it features cars, planes, motor bikes and so on.
The quilt is 62 x 74 inches and the kit is $170.00, which include all the fabric and pattern to make the top of this quilt including binding.
If you want to purchase the pattern on its own it is $20.00
