    A few of my quilts

    This was the first quilt I ever made and not being someone who is frightened of a challenge, I made it in flannel. It is for my eldest son and he loves it very much........thank goodness!

    This was the quilt I made which really inspired me to become a "quilter". I stitched it while my husband was undergoing treatment for cancer. Sadly he died shortly after I finished it so it has a special place in my heart.

    We organised a donation of quilts to the hospital ward where the chemotherapy takes place as many of the patients become very cold. This was a simply log cabin that I made.

    This is a Christmas Tree Skirt which is folded in half for display at an exhibition. I love it very much as it took ages with all the hand-beading.

    Finally this is the art quilt which I made as part of my Stitched Textiles course. You can also see a pillow which I made . I am not sure that this style of quilting is "me" but it fulfilled the design requirements of the course so it served its purpose.

    Thank you for looking at my quilts. I hope that I have not been too boastful about my work. I just wanted to share some of my creations with you so that you can get to know me better!

    You've made some lovely quilts. The 2nd one is especially lovely. So sorry to hear about your husband, but glad that you had the quilting to comfort you during that time.

    You are very talented! Beautiful quilts and love the tree skirt too. Sorry for your loss of your DH, cancer takes too many of our loved ones too soon.
    Always in Stitches,

    So blessed in the opportunity of life, the gifts of nature, and the choice to do good to others. I'm thankful for this day.

    What a beautiful collection. Your talent shines through on each one. Quilting seems to get many of us through what are some pretty dark times. I often think it is the very best of therapies. Thank you for sharing your work with us.
