Quilt Gallery

These are some of my favourite quilts. Most are on the washing line in my garden. I must get more inventive.

This quilt is a copy cat of a quilt made by Jordana Paige found on Pinterest. Various solids and a few prints from stash. The back is bobbly bright yellow fleece the choice of my daughter whose quilt it is. In fact it’s usually up this way on her bed as the cats make a bee line for it.  As I’ve said elsewhere the cats rule this household!

This is a design I found on one of the wonderful tutorials of the Missouri Quilt Company. It’s basically appliqué and uses the scraps from another quilt I have just made. This went to my mother-in-law.

This mini quilt is for the Quilters Guild Modern Group 2016 challenge.  The theme this year is black and white and one other (colour).  The technique I wanted to play with was bias tape appliqué and coming home from a trip I happened to glance at my satnav as I was going through a particularly busy junction and saw this beautiful design. It’s the M4 and M5 interchange. Who would have known road planners had such artistry!

The Stargazer quilt by Lunden designs using the Birch organic cotton range of Scamper. I liked the earthy tones and it goes well in our lounge. Those skinny arms were the devil to do…

Interlock a quilt design by Amy Friend is a fast and furious quilt design if you want it to be. It got pretty much pieced in a day, a long day, for Project Linus.  No seams to match and easy chain piecing. Perfect for a jelly roll.

Using the six minute insert circle technique, although I never managed to do it in six minutes, this quilt was for Eva, a friend’s grandchild

…and finally the triangle quilt using Dear Stella Flirt range for the newly born baby sister of Eva
