I Spy with my little eye.

This fantastic and very colourful eye spy quilt has a photo of the recipient right in the middle of it. I quilted this with an all over design of animals and trimmed out the photo so no stitches went over the image.Each group within a square has a theme, for example, jungle ,farm animals,sea creatures. It is another very nice quilt made by Gill.

babys first quilt.

Another sweet baby quilt made by Cheryl.This one has sail boats on it. I quilted it with an all over design by Kim Diamond. When the baby came it was a girl so Cheryl had to go make another quilt. Aww gee!!

Fran made this great little crib quilt with appliqued cars,rucks and assorted automobiles for a new little grandson. I quilted this with an all over design of trucks and tow trucks etc. Fran was pleased with it.

I made this quilt for my neice Anna for her 21st birthday last month. The fabrics were purchased from Quilters Bazaar. I used a block pattern from Anne Bright for the centre blocks .In the black stop border is also a design by Anne bright .The outer border of peacock feathers has a wonderful feather border by Cathy Olsen called curls and swirls. Here it is on Anna's bed. I think she was happy with it. I absolutely loved the way it turned out.

Loz wanted an all over design and we chose Clam Shells. I was hesitant to do an all over design but we were both very pleased with the results.What do you think?

I have just completed this wallhanging for a client using a gold coloured rayon thread that she provided. It quilted up well and this was fun to do.

Same,same but different.

Sisters sent me 2 beautiful tops for me to finish for them. Each quilt was the same design but had different fabric and thread choices. The first treasure I quilted a feather border with a scrolly treatment in the sashings, I used point to point curve in the 2"blocks on both quilts. I used a radiating ray line design in the stitcheries on this first quilt. and a leafy scroll in the sashings. Both quilts looked fabulous when finished

This customer requested cross hatch over the embroidery blocks. I used the same frame for each sash but different border treatment.

The Dolls House.

Imagine the delight on a little girls face as she is presented with this georgous quilt which I think is called The Dolls House. This quilt is available as a block of the month or a kit from Quilters Bazaar in Gisborne ,Victoria. You can go to their website to order it for your favourite little lady.I custom quilted this with stitch in the ditch and echo quilting,clamshells on the roof, flowering vines up the sides ,clouds in the sky and flowers in the green garden at the bottom. It was great fun.

I have edited this post as I have mixed up the owner of this quilt with another quilter with a quilt of the same colour way.(Only in my mind ). This is the one and maybe only quilt made by my customers niece.Customer had it quilted for her for her birthday/Christmas. I like this very much and I am sure the maker will be very proud of her efforts I custom quilted this with designs by Anne Bright.

This very soft and pretty looking quilt has both normal fabric and chenille blocks. It was quilted with an all over design.The chenille quilts out well.
