Stone Circle finds new homeThe latest of my quilts to head to a new setting is Stone Circle, shown here; we hope it brings lots of pleasure to its new owner. If you’d like the opportunity to own an original Gail Lawther quilt, check out our Gail’s quilts for sale page


Fancy spending a weekend with other quilters, all indulging in your favourite hobby? A weekend away from work and household duties, at a hotel with its own swimming pool and gym, being served delicious meals that you don’t have to plan or prepare?!

There are still a few places left at the Seaside Celebrations quilt retreat I’m doing at the end of the month with The Little House of Patchwork. The venue is the Chichester Park hotel, and the retreat runs from the evening of Friday February 22nd till teatime on Sunday 24th. And, if you live nearby, you can come as a day participant instead of staying over. For more details, contact Tanya Bashford via the links below:

We’re back to our teaching (Gail having started quilting classes and Chris working with his HE-level graphics students). Gail has a host of bookings around England (and a quick Scottish trip to Kelso) for 2019, with some residential courses, workshops at assorted shops and with groups. We’ll both be at shows at Sandown/Esher in June, NEC Birmingham in August, and Duxford in October.

Here’s a listing of the shops Gail is teaching at this year, along with their websites:

One exciting project in progress is another booklet in the Quick Quilts series. The photo below is a sneak preview from forthcoming ‘Noah’s Ark’ ideas.

Her two quilts below both feature in her new, ‘autumn leaves’ workshop. The quilt on the left, and templates for all the leaves, are featured in ‘Garlands’ – one of the recent additions to our series of Gail Lawther’s Quick Quilts booklets. These can all be ordered via our Books page and order form.








Gail has produced a couple of very large and colourful church banners for the Church of Christ the King in Milnthorpe, Cumbria, for which she’s learnt to use the long-arm quilting machine (above) at the little house of patchwork – many thanks to Tanya. You can see the largest one (2.5 x 2metres) completed, above. If you’d like to see more of her church banner designs visit the church banner page
