Beans on Toast Quilting Group

I am a member of the Beans on Toast quilting group. We meet every few weeks in each other homes. One member set a challenge in the summer. We were to make a wall hanging using a Chritmas card as the inspiration. I completed my wall hanging the night before our Christmas meeting. This is normal practice for me to leave projects until the last minute!!! What do think of my last minute quilt?
We all gave a fat quarter as winner's prize. Who won? Only the quilter that set the challenge.....
Well Done Anne.

October Bag

This is October bag which took two months to complete!! So I missed November pattern. I am sad that the British Quilt List challenge is coming to an end this month. I have completed ten out of the twelve bag patterns.

All the bags can be seen on the British Quilt List Blog. And I will tell you about the challenge for 2009 when Kandy announces it!!!

Katipatch Sister Block Exchange

This is the second year I have exchanged blocks with quilters in New Zealand and Australia. These are the blocks I have made and now on their way to Katipatch shop in Katikati NZ. They co-ordinate the exchange. This year Carol and Cindy chose a challenge fabric. It took me a long time to decide on what blocks I would sew as I did not like the fabric initially. But now the fabric has found a small place in my heart and fabric stash!!
When I recieve my blocks from Katipatch I will be posting here first. So do come back in the near future.
If you would like to get involved in next year's Sister Block Exchange check out the Katipatch website.

September Bag

This is last month bag. It is log cabin blocks on point and ready made handles. It is a small bag but it takes a lot of fabric. A great way to use up your scraps.

Devon Delights

This little landscape is hand applique and quilted. I make this quilt from a pattern by Columbine Designs. I entered this quilt into the Quay Quilters Exhibition. And recently a dear friend (who saw this quilt at the show) asked if I would sell her the quilt as she loved it. What a honour!

Each month this year I have been making a new bag with patterns from Kandy Newton's Yahoo group called 'The British Quilt List'. This is May's bag. This is March's bag. This is the most useful bag and my most colourful bag. This is February's bag. I love the design of this bag and is my favourite bag so far this year. If you see me out and about with any of my bags , please say hello and I may even send you a fat quarter.

Bulleye Blocks

During the autumn of 2006, I participated in a bulleye block swap with Nancy and Vicki. This was part of a bigger swap with the yahoo group called Fab Lover Swap. I finished my top today. Now I have to layer and quilt it!! That could take another eighteen months. So watch this space in a few years time to see the finished quilt.
