I am very excited to be starting a new quilt. My fabric is ready and I just have to start cutting. I am trying to stick as close as possible to a Kaffe Fassett design. I chose the colours with my niece as she will be keeping the finished quilt as a wedding present. Looks pretty happy and bright.
I'm just an ordinary working Mum who likes to do things. I am not really good at relaxing quietly so I tend to be making things all the time. I love the feel and colour of textiles and have tried my hand at tapestry weaving, knitting, stumpwork, embroidery - wool, ribbon and silk, lace making, mosaics, hardanger, crewel, and quilting. The quilting has only come about in the last few years as it is much kinder to my hands and I can work on it for longer periods than the embroidering.
