July at Plush Addict

It's just coming up to school summer holiday season in the UK, we finally have hot weather, although so hot no one quite knows what to do with themselves and I am emjoying lots and lots of bright colours at the moment so it's time to visit sponsor Plush Addict and I'm making nine extra colourful  choices this month. Many of these choices are related to UK fabric companies and have the magic touch of British quilters such as Lynne Goldsworthy of Lily's Quilts and Kelly Liddle of Jeli Quilts 

Row by row, l to r:

1. Makower, Windy Day bundle.  Another cute and bright range from UK company Makower.  Lynne Goldsworthy has designed a quilt kit for these too available separately here and here
2. Dashwood Studio Twist Arrow Quilt designed by Lynne Goldsworthy.
3. Michael Miller Vintage Kitchen FQ Bundle. Not surprisingly, I think this is my favrouite of today's selection- great  retro colours, kitchen themes and some animals sprinkled in too, win win!
4. Riley Blake glasses multi.  Great print for pouches, bags and of course quilts!
5.  Postcards from Sweden Quilt Kit (pre order).  All kits are here
6. Sew & Sew from Choe's Closet Moda.  A pastel rainbow  of floral and sewing themed fabrics available in Jelly roll, layer cake and charm pack as well as selected prints. and a fat quarter bundle. 
7.  Dashwood Millefleur- Floral Stems on Bright Blue.  Millefleurs is a stunning collection from UK company Dashwood and this is my favourite print (see the bundle here)
8. Makower Wrap it Up Quilt Kit . Get your Christmas quilt sorted early with this kit designed by Lynne Goldsworthy.
9. Riley Blake Unicorns & Rainbows.  A crazy print which always proves very popular.

One of the effects of Brexit for UK quilt/fabric shops could well be for them to look at UK suppliers, with the changes in £/$ rates it makes much better business sense and with companies such as Dashwood and Makower creating such fantastic ranges and working with British quilters like Lynne and Kelly, this could well be a positive spin off.
