I feel very priveledged that people trust me with their precious quilt tops and I enjoy making each one as individeual as I can.
This very pretty "pink"quilt has been quilted with an E2E called wild roses. I used pale pink thread.I think it turned out a treat.

I call this the seaside quilt.
It is a grandmothers braid of course. Made in a class at
Quilters Bazaar. This quilt is made from a jelly roll type flat pack using batik fabrics, and can be made in a class in just one day.
I call it the seaside quilt because of the colours in it.And then I quilted it with a seaweed design.I just love it.

Here is an adorable quilt for a little girl.The seaside scenes are really cute. Marg has fussy cut the fabric and made a very special quilt.I used an E2E sailboat design which complimented the fabrics. Check out the backing fabric.

variety is the spice of life.

OOps, I have now edited my post LOL Hello, I have been quilting up a storm lately,I have done a lonestar quilt and a stitchery quilt. I have no photos as my battery charger was playing up.I will have to ask my Dear Daughter,Lorraine from Quilters Bazaar to take photos when they are picked up so I can brag about them LOL.
Here we have a lovely quilt very suitable for the man in your life. The design is called day and night. The maker is in her 70's and still quilting up a storm.This lady has macula degeneration and is slowly going blind. She has finished another quilt since this one and it is in the queue. I quilted this with an all over design called in the moment.

This really cute baby quilt was made by a very excited grandmother to be .Trinza always does a beautiful job of her piecing and was no different with her applique A really lovely way to use up scraps or make an eye spy quilt.

This beautiful appliqued rose of Sharon is all hand pieced and needle turn applique. Esme always does a beautiful job and I love quilting for her. I used a cross hatch fill with trim behind the appliqued blocks and Point to Point diamond pattern in the red sashes.The outer border had a Dogwood rose design that complimented the applique.

This is a great use of the Drunkards Path block and batik fabrics to give a stunning quilt. The photos do not do it justice. Quilted with a swirly all over design

This quilt shows a very good use of colour and looks very effective from a distance. It is an I spy quilt for a child which I quilted with a design called dragonfly fantasy as they are whimsical dragonflies. Another lovely quilt. I am extremely fortunate to be quilting some lovely quilts.

This beautiful,delicate quilt was quilted with an all over design of heart flowers by Anne Bright.

This is my dear friend Helen with a cushion cover she made. I quilted it for her one afternoon when she was visiting my studio.
Behind her is my Gammill Optimum machine.
Lovely cushion Helen.
