Amitie Stash Bundles

Amitie Textiles in Melbourne stock the coolest and most eclectic mix of fabrics and you can take advantage of that by joining their stash scheme.  This parcel of beauties just arrived in my letter box.


Text prints and European monuments as well as some Field Study, some Liberty and some of my favourite current line, Marmalade by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.  They were so irresistible that I instantly made them into one more of my lozenge blocks.  I now have 16 lozenge blocks and am working towards 25.  I love EPP and these blocks are enjoyably mindless.  You can find a link to the templates in this post here if you're interested in trying them out.


And here is my Touchdraw picture of where I'm going with this one.  I'm thinking it might end up being called The Sashiko EPP Quilt because it looks kind of sashiko-ey to me.  My younger daughter Amy thinks it should be called the Hugs and Kisses Quilt.  Or can you come up with a better name?  Funny and rude names will of course also appeal to me.

  1. great mailbox surprise!
    I would call it "Garden Gate" (I know...that is not funny or rude...but that is what it reminds me of!!)

  2. Before I read the name, my first thought was actually that it looked like x's and o's, so Hugs and Kisses definitely works. My second though was that it made me want waffles.

    I think "Waffle Iron" is appropriate. "Waffle Butt" is my rude and inappropriate version. :-)

  3. I love the 'hugs and kisses' title - other than that how about trellis

  6. I’m working on blocks like this, no EPP but hand sewing. They are called merry-go-round blocks.
    I love Flo’s suggestion of Garden Gate!

  7. I think of football and xs and os to represent offense and defense.
    Tutorial! Quilt along! It is a cool idea for two colour quilt and I like the gray and off-white.

  8. Sorry Lynne. I agree with Amy. They do look like x's and o's so it must be hugs and kisses

  9. Gorgeous fabrics! As for a rude name, I'm afraid that as soon as I read Flo's suggestion I thought of putting 'Lady' in front of it... *hangs head in shame*

  10. Noughts and crosses springs to mind, which leads me to Tic Tac Toe but of course that's not rude at all. Hugs and Kisses is also very good.

  11. The Pyramid Acrobats Pulling a Mooney quilt? Doesn't really trip off the tongue does it? I love these blocks and have made so many (okay 4) for one reason or another, I could do them in my sleep.

  12. If makes me think of a Knot Garden... So that leads me to the rather dated term... Get Knotted..!

  13. Looks to me like a lattice garden screen! Looking good!

  14. Looks like lattice or trellis to me - that's what I'd incorporate into my name. Although I do like the waffle suggestion!

  15. Lynne, there doesn't seem to be a link where you indicated for the paper-pieced templates, but it looks like four Indian Hatchet blocks together.

  16. love that block Lynne! I would definately love to try it out - but as I think mentioned above, there doesn't seem to be a link set up? p.s. perrrrfect fabric choices for the block design! and I'm rather taken with 'Hugs and Kisses' ...

  17. It looks like the concrete blocks that people put down in the drive where you park your car. Does Car Park work for you?

  18. It reminds me of bits of caning that you'd find in a cane chair. No specific names based on this are coming to me, except a play on the name "Cane Mutiny".
