I’m quilting in the rain…

Well, not actually IN the rain. But it is raining. And the girls were all at school today so what better excuse to pull out a WIP and get cracking.

Much more to go… but it’s coming along and I’m getting lots of FMQ practice in along the way!


This quilt is made using Michael Miller Cotton Couture from here and AMH voiles from the stash using improv piecing. It is destined to be a gift but it’s taking much longer than I had hoped as I’m stopping and starting between meals so we can use the dining table for you know, it’s actual purpose!

Something to share

I’ve been working on so many quilts recently that I’ve not been able to share… some for classes, some for new patterns

This one though, is one of a couple I’ve been making for pure pleasure to gift to people I love. I’ve been keeping them secret in case the recipients clue onto the gift before time.

I can finally share a project with you as today, I gave this quilt to a gorgeous friend who I just adore. She’s an amazing woman, wife, sister, mother, friend and nurse. These past weeks she needed a cup of tea, a block of chocolate and a great big hug. I think a quilt made with love is all of those things put together.

Here is my hug for you lovely lady, you are an inspiration and such a fabulous friend, love ya lots!
