  1. Terracotta Bricks for a Builder

    by , 05-24-2013 at 01:38 PM
    Iím pretty sure this is one my mother made although I can see it was made of a pooled collection of scraps because some of them are from my stash. The block pattern was a block of the month challenge which I think I might have set for our quilting group. As I recognise all the fabrics in the quilt as a collection of ďyours and mineĒ this must have been a joint effort for mum and me rather than of the group as a whole.

I wanted to rise to the challenge as always but I find the block rather pedestrian, perhaps because Iíve only made it in co-ordinated colours and plain fabrics, so a decided to do it in heavily patterned fabrics and mix it up so that the pattern was lost and the fabric became the star of the piece rather ...
  3. Stained Glass Window Quilt

    by , 04-16-2013 at 01:07 PM
    Hereís a quilt my mother made for her granddaughter to celebrate her 21st Birthday, Sally found the design in a book and brought it to mum, ďGrandma, Iíd love this for my 21st Birthday, could youÖ.?
    Eek, no pattern, no instructions, just an image. So mum set about it valiantly, scaling up the image then drawing it onto a backing layer, sourcing the fabrics, so many Rainbow colours, so little time.
