This is a very nice quilt of the traditional kind. The fabrics and the oak leaf design remind me of Autunm. The leaves were hand appliqued using metalic threads. I quilted it with an all over design of oakleaves and acorns.

My customer embroidered these cute bears on her embroidery machine., then combined the blocks with plain blocks and borders for a new baby in her life. I quilted the plain blocks with a new design by Joanne knott of the Quilters Quilter. The trimmed background in the bear blocks is a design by Anita Shackleton. A very pretty cot quilt for a new baby.The binding was sewn on while still on the frame.

My customer made this georgous quilt for her granddaughter Saffron, from a book purchased at Quilters Bazaar. She couldn't help herself and added more applique and stitching and ended up with this beauty. I hope my quilting does it justice.The borders and background 2" squares are quilted using the statler and a fairy design by Anne Bright. Then I took the belts off and freehanded the blocks. It was lots of fun to do. The recipient of this quilt is one verrrry lucky little fairy princess. It is a shame I did not get a good photo of the whole quilt.

My customer visited a taylor in Vietnam and they gave her some scraps of silk. Carol has used them to make outfits for many different asian figures.They look awesome. I quilted it with an edge 2 edge design called Bamboo Butterfly by Kim Diamond. I trimmed out the cream blocks with the figures in them and used a background fill with trim by Anita Shackleton.This quilt is for one very lucky little granddaughter.

These lovely table runners along with 2 more have been made by a lovely customer of mine. She is in her 80's and has macula degeneration ,so I don't know if she will be quilting at this time next year. I dearly hope so. Anyway she has made thes for her children and her neighbour who looks after her animals when she is away. I did a Holly berry panto on them and trimmed out the centre blocks and customed around the applique centres. What a lovely memory for her family to keep.

Today we have a lovely quilt made by Leanne for her nephew. Leanne used oriental fabrics with maple leaves dominating the fabrics so I used a maple lef design to quilt it. This is very suitable for a male. Nice job Leanne.
