Boston Commons

Hello again.
This is a "Boston Commons" quilt It was a great learning curve for me as the borders,blocks,and triangles were all too big to quilt in one pass. I learnt how to successfully divide blocks to make them fit into the space I could quilt then to roll on the quilt and rejoin the blocks with no spaces and no tell tale signs. I used designs by Anne Bright,and I was very pleased with the finished quilt as was the owner.

Baby quilt with stitcheries and Kaliedescope Quilt

Check out this georgous baby quilt with bluebird stitcheries. My friend wanted double hobbs polydown batting for puffiness.I then quilted it with a fluffy cloud design. The quilt came out beautifully cuddly and lightweight.

I was so taken with the blocks in this kaliedescope quilt i forgot to take a photo of the whole quilt. Customer requested e2e called Botanical Blossoms. She had seen it on another kaliedescope quilt I had quilted. This quilt did look very special when finished.

Double Wedding ring

I quilted a huge double wedding ring and I only got 1 photo of it that is any good. The first photo shows some of the fullness in the quilt which I was able to tame with quilting.

The second photo shows some of the designs used on the quilt. I hope you like what you see. It looked stunning when finished.

I'm Back and with a Mariners Compass.

Hello everyone,
I have been on holiday to New Zealand ,then my computer played up.I have just got a new desktop computer and am learning how to use it.
This is my first Mariners Compass quilt. Such a stunning one to start with. All the blocks around the quilt are quilted differently also .It was daunting to start with but once I started I just loved doing it. I hope you like it.
