My aunts quilt

My mum commissioned me to make a quilt for my aunt, she is missing her and wanted something to show her how much she means to her.
Here it is all finished, traditional but modern all at the same time, backing fabric is Indian cotton lawn with a durable cotton batting. Edge to edge quilted in a paisley design.
A whopping 90”x90” in size.
Today it’s flying of to Canada where my lovely auntie Ann lives.
After a month long journey to Canada Ann finally got her quilt, looks fabulous!

Vintage reproduction quilt

Yellow and white feathered star, I used vintage white cotton sheets I bought several years ago at an auction in Exeter and pale yellow cotton that was once curtains no one wanted.
The quilt design is my version of a quilt made in the late 1800’s.
I wanted to practice my feathers both freehand and electronic and went a little crazy but had a lot of fun.

Slims quilt

Meet Slim, a stray cat who has moved in with me, he is adorable so I thought he should have his own quilt.
So I made him this one.
It’s 50” square, made with Kaffe Fasset fabrics, pure wool batting and a super soft fleece backing.
Lightly quilted on the mini machine.
So far Slim has not even looked at it let alone sit or sleep on it, Poppet on the other hand likes it just fine.
Or many be not!
Although he does sit or sleep on every other quilt in the house!
Especially if I am working near by.
Just not the one I made for him!

A super fast throw quilt made from leftovers.

A super easy and fast throw quilt made with 8.5” squares.
I used left over fabric from an other quilt.
I bought the fabric in New Zealand last year, I wanted to make a quilt for myself to remind me of my trip to an incredibly beautiful country.
I wanted it to be super soft and cuddly, I chose a very sweet E2E pantograph design, feathers and flowers.
The backing fabric is again left over from an other quilt, it’s really a Christmas design but I liked it so much and the fabric so soft I thought I would use it.
Here it is with a couple of pillows I made using lots of scrap fabric and some little 3.5” orphan blocks.
I’m loving this quilt, it will be fabulous in the summer for picnics.

Spring flowers quilt

Lots of machine appliqué flowers and hearts, fresh spring colours.
Although I have lightly machine quilted this quilt I’m not finished it entirely, I will be hand quilting it using the big stitch method with lots of different threads, I will do this in the summer outside in the sun.
