It’s taken a while, but as at June of 2012, I’ve started to complete quilts!
“Beguiling Billings” – My first ever prize winning quilt! From a Block of the Month re-drafted from an original quilt (circa 1790) by Karen at Somerset Patchwork.
“Cambourne” – hand pieced and machine quilted (by Karen at Seams Like Yesterday). From a template set designed by me called Black Forest. My own design.
“Nest” – make from a jelly roll of the same name by Tula Pink. Started at a Sorrento weekend in 2011 and finished in July 2012. Machine pieced and hand quilted in perle 8 thread.
(The following are thanks to the quilting skills of Louise from Caribou Quilting!) From a pattern by Amitie Textiles which appeared in an issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine a few year ago. The fabrics were purchased from Gone Quilting (now itself gone!)
Flower Power is a quilt I designed for a student.
When the first range of French General came out, one of my students loved it, but wondered what to do with it. Between leaving class and arriving at a friend’s house, I had the plan nutted out. Initially I made it in French General (yet to be hand quilted as this date), but it was so quick and easy, I wanted to make another.
