Sometimes when I come into work there’s a parcel waiting for me that brightens my day!    Last week was just one of those days.   A mysterious parcel had arrived, and when it was opened it was full to the brim of the latest samples from MakowerUK.  It certainly brought a smile to my face for sure.

The full range of Bijoux is just amazing and we have an exclusive new BOM arriving to our website  in April that will appeal to those applique lovers out there which is using much of this fabulous range.  It would work just as well as a stash builder for when you just need a particular colour to match the pattern or range you are using.    The fabric feels lush and it doesn’t fray easily either, which for raw edge applique is always a bonus.   Just look the fabulous range of colours.

The Makower UK Bijoux Range

The MakowerUK Essentials range is always a popular one to have .. tone on tone and white on white in all the pastels.   We have sent out this to some of our Bloggerati in Blogger Central to review and make up for you all to enjoy, but here’s a sample of what you can find in the shops right now.

A selection from the MakowerUK Essentials Range

The lovely Diane Rooney joined MakowerUK very recently and we have already shown you her lovely Merryn Range designed exclusively for them, so it was nice to see that in the parcel.  Wait and see what our Bloggerati make of this one.   Diane will be blogging for us in the future, but you can read her story so far right here

Rex will be popular with the youngsters this spring and summer and we can already see lots of baby floor quilts and toys springing up.  Lovely bright colours and the Octosaurus Rex pattern available to download here for free will certainly be a popular one this year we think.

It might be a little early for some, but the Christmas Fabrics are already on order ready for the festive seasons sewathons later in the year.   Our Bloggerati were keen to get started so later in April keep a look out for what they make of these new patterns.

Three from the Beachcomber Range

But before we start thinking about Christmas there’s the summer on the horizon, and what’s better than a bit of Beachcombing using the Beachcomber Range and maybe the  lovely Mariners Compass Quilt, designed by Lynne Goldsworthy for MakowerUK.   Or this pretty Tote Bag to take to the beach with you designed by Janet Goddard.
