    Awhile back I wrote that I would be posting some pictures of what I have been making. I hope the following makes good eye candy :-D

    I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed making them.

    Regards, Dianne

    The points aren't too bad at all (LOL)

    Thank you for your kind comments. I am always a little frightened to put my work on display. I am self taught and have been quilting for nearly two years now. I have learnt a lot from the various quilting sites, but, also I have learnt a whole lot from this forum. You are all generous, encouraging and very talented.

    I am doing some fusible applique at the moment - pictures will follow soon!!

    I also made lots of table runners (using the tube method), and place mats for Christmas presents last year. One thing I recommend to anyone new or old to quilting - Keep a Journal. I have started a "Brag Book" of photos of my quilts and also a journal in which I will be keeping notes and pictures of what I am doing. Hopefully, this will be a great reference source (of what not to do LOL) and a history of my work.

    Thank you all again, Dianne

    Your quilts are fantastic Diane. I was shocked to read you've only been quilting for two years when I saw the post a little later on! Your work is beautiful, and your color choices are spot on!!
