Traditional quilts

Another favourite and the last quilt that I hand quilted – took me 6 weeks and gave me two tennis elbows from which it was a long slow road to recovery…. haven’t been game to do any since! Besides discovering the joys of machine quilting means I get them finished much more quickly and thus can get on to the next one!

Scrap Sampler quilt, called "Scrappy Notions" , it includes English paper piecing, celtic bias hand work, needle turn applique, paper foundation piecing, and hand quilting. Queen Size quilt.

    • Hi Janet! thanks for visiting, and I am glad you have enjoyed seeing some of my work. I am trying to blog a bit more often and will endeavour to make it interesting, not too much chatter but a few photos! Maybe we can catch up next time I am over your way!

    • Hi Melissia
      No, sorry, I have no immediate plans to write instructions for this quilt – although I have considered it previously. It’s a pretty time consuming task 🙂 but perhaps I should reconsider! thanks for the query.
