    Here’s 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, “Grandma, I’d love this for my 21st Birthday, could you….?
    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.

  9. Red Chickens

    I have a new embroidery collection of redwork chickens that sewed on my embroidery machine. After I made a few samples I decided to put them together in a quilt. I spent many hours searching quilt patterns to find one to put the chicken in the middle. I finally laid the blocks on the floor and the the quilt designed itself. I hope you like chickens as much as I do
