I sell my patterns with or without fabric kits. The kits contain the applique fabric, background fabric, felt (if appropriate), freezer paper and suitable stabilizer. They don’t generally contain any thread so I have put together a little sample pack of Wonderfil threads that have some of the core colours that I use a lot.
If you would like to order a pack, they are £21.50 and contain six reels of Wonderfil tutti, each 200m. The colours may vary slightly from shown here but will be a similar selection of natural shades. These reels are made up especially for me so have a long lead ordering time, please allow 2 to 4 weeks to ship. If you are interested in any other Wonderfil threads, please don’t hesitate to message me and I will see if I can help.
Six wildlife themed wonderfil tutti sample packs, 200m on each reel.
I am also putting together little stash builders. I source batik fabrics from a number of different online shops and I am always on the look out for more. I find that my designs work best with watercolour/smoke dyed/polo batiks. These are dyed without the use of wax to add a second defined pattern, so they give soft gentle colour changes. (Although occasionally the changes in colour can be very vibrant and distinctive.) I will keep adding different selections of colourways, and I will make them available as either selection of twelve 16th (so approximately 9.75″ by 11″) or six thin 8ths (9.75″ by 22″). A stash pack costs £13 including delivery within the UK. If you are outside the UK please message me so I can send you out an individual invoice to cover the additional postage charges. I will generally be making up stashes each month and sending out, so please allow up to 4 weeks for delivery. (I will do my best to keep it significantly below that!)

Green colour way (FS02)

If you want an individual pack making up of colours that aren’t shown here then just message me.
If you would like larger amounts, just add multiple amounts to your cart (so for fat quarters add two of any of the eighth packs).
I am happy to customise packs so if you would rather have 3 fat quarters, or eights of some and 16ths of others, when you order, just specify which ones you want in the comments sections of the paypal order, or send me a message, making sure they all add up to the right amount of total fabric overall. I am happy to be flexible 🙂 .
My stabiliser of choice for smaller projects or when I know I won’t be hand quilting is Madiera super strong cut away stabiliser. I don’t usually bother cutting away any of it when I’m finished and just leave it in. When I am hand quilting, I much prefer a tear away stabiliser as it is quick and easy to remove and any larger wall hanging quilt kits will tend to include this type unless you ask for an alternative.
The cutaway one is perfect for learning on as it keeps the fabric lovely and stiff. It comes by the metre and is 90cm wide and made from polyester.
