If you are not sure about anything, bring along the fabric from you project and we can sort it out.  Don’t forget •             Your quilt top •             Quilt backing ( I have some available to buy) •             Quilt wadding ( I have some available to buy - Hobbs 80/20 £10.00/m, Hobbs Polydown 10.00/m, Quilters Dream 100% Cotton £17.00 / m, Hobbs 100% Wool £18.00/m) •             2.5 “ binding  to go around the perimeter of your quilt, with at least 10” extra for joining if you require me to add it. •             I offer a £10.00 embroidered label service,  if you are interested bring along an A4 size piece of fabric for the label and the words you would like included. •             £20.00 deposit towards your payment (Cheque payable to ‘Frances Meredith’ or cash or Bank Transfer)  My address is Wyvern, Beachley Road, Tutshill, Chepstow, NP16 7EG Tel 01291 629120 If you are using a SatNav, put house number 18, that is opposite us. I am based in Tutshill, near Chepstow which is on the A48 on the border of England and Wales, down the road from St John’s On The Hill School. The bridge is now FREE!  Directions from Gloucester: Get onto the A48 and head to Chepstow / South Wales. Keep on this road. When you are near you will see the National Diving and Activity Centre on your right and one mile down the road you will need to get ready to turn left towards Sedbury / Tutshill/ Beachley Barracks. Once turned right you will meet a rbt. Turn right towards Tutshill. As you drive over the bridge you will see houses set back with a grass verge on the right. We are the last one  (Wyvern) with a camper van in the drive, down the road from St John’s on the Hill school. I am on the England side of Chepstow in Tutshill, so if you have gone over a bridge and have Tescos on your left, you have gone too far.  Directions from Newport or Severn Bridge: Head to Chepstow and get onto the A48. Keep on this road. You will drive downhill to traffic lights and Tesco on your right. Continue straight ahead. You will go over a bridge and you will see a sign, Welcome to England. You will then go under a bridge, which eventually you will be driving on top of. Signal right and get ready to turn right towards Sedbury / Tutshill. Once turned right you will meet a rbt. Turn right towards Tutshill. As you drive over the bridge you just drove under you will see houses set back with a grass verge on the right. We are the last one  (Wyvern) with a camper van in the drive. The bridge is now FREE!

quilted at Fabadashery Longarm Quilting
Many of my customers this year have been proud to say that they made their quilt 'completely from their stash!'  I believe this is one such quilt, a stunning Trip Around the World quilt made by Camilla.  I love the amazing mix of colours and the quilt pattern we chose was Modern Curves by Anita Shackleford.

This quilt is known as the Rosa Biddlecombe quilt, designed by Margaret Mew.  Jenny has made a lovely job of this and tempted me to add this to my quilt bucket list.

For the quilting pattern we chose 'Squirts' designed by Anne Bright.  Despite its name it is a very elegant quilt pattern, which is great for quilts which have detail such as the bouquet appliqued at the centre of the medallion quilt.  Also, Jenny chose HOBBS 100% Wool, which I usually have available to buy, for the wadding, which has made it a beautifully light quilt.
