    My first piece of quilting

    Well, as a newbie I am greatly inspired by all of your photos, so I thought I ought to share my first (and only) quilted piece so far, especially since it's seasonal! It's a Makower Advent Calendar that I finished this time last year, and my girls were really excited to unpack it again this year so I guess it's a hit! This is what got me well and truly hooked on hand quilting... hopefully I can share more in the future (have spent the whole of this year dressmaking, not quilting). This is my first upload too ,so I hope that it works!

    Very nice! I love the hand quilting of the flames - makes that stand out. Beautiful job!

    A wonderful first quilt - and a family heirloom in the making by the sounds of it!

    Very cute! Really nice that the girls were excited to unpack it this year. It must get super surprises in the pockets.
