1. Terracotta Bricks for a Builder

    by , 05-24-2013 at 01:38 PM
    I’m 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 “yours and mine” this must have been a joint effort for mum and me rather than of the group as a whole.

  3. Stained Glass Window Quilt

    by , 04-16-2013 at 01:07 PM
    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.

    My Favourite quilt, the one I’m most proud of, the one which hasn’t yet been washed, and the one no-one is allowed to sit on, is called “There’s plenty more”.
