"Sister Quilt" to another one

Why does the wind spring up when I take photos.  This one has feminine pictures, butterflies, fans, florals and so  on.

Licorice All sorts

This is Licorice allsorts.  I found this pattern in a British magazine on the front cover, and just had to make it.

A bright cot quilt

This  panel was  given to me, it's so easy to put borders  on panels..

A little Girl's quilt

This is definitely a little girl's quilt  with Holly Hobby type little girls.  I had to add two panels to 'square it up'.

A child's quilt

Pictures of animals in borders.  Quite simple to do.

Another scrap buster

Hmmm, the sun is shining through making it look lighter than it is.
This is  another  stash-buster, however I still have a basket full of scraps. This is the same as a previous quilt but with a green and purple border.

Made for little boys

I found this in a recent issue of US Patchwork and quilting,  I am planning to make one for girls, I have all the fabric ready to start.

A Bright panel

This is a lovely bright panel, there are two of these, with different borders.

More Owls

I was given this panel so I separated the pictures, put some borders on and another quilt is 'born'.

Teddy Bears

This was a small piece of fabric, a few borders and ....another baby quilt is made.


This is the baby quilt mentioned on an earlier post.  The 'spots' along the top are small owls appliqued on with branches embroidered on.

A quilt suitable for a boy/man

A quilt suitable for a boy/man, absolutely no florals. A variation of Post and Rail

Lovely Birthday gifts

I made these bags some time ago, two of them have been given as birthday gifts.


This quilt has hundreds of 2.5" X 5" patches,  but it didn't use enough of my stash, I will have to make another (and another). I have been putting  scraps in a a big bag to give to the Vet for animal beds. but I have decided to go through the bag and cut some 2.5"squares.  for a 'plus signquilt I ave seen.


This is a quilt I found on  a  US Patchwork and Quilting magazine.  I have the fabric for a green one.
It was an interesting project to do

A new year begins and Heart song

Patchwork groups start meeting next week.  I must remember to take my lunch and a mug for coffee. First task in getting ready is to have some hand sewing to fill a few hours.  I have been tackling a wall quilt in the British Patchwork and Quilting magazine.  The project is called Heart song and  the  blocks have hearts on musical backgrounds.  Again I have "bitten off more than I can chew" choosing a project which could be beyond my skills.
