Tulip Quilt

I made this wall hanging many years ago at a South West Quilters workshop in Exeter.  The tutor was Anja Townrow.   
Anja taught us her method for machine curved piecing.  She is a witty wonderful tutor and shares her knowledge willingly.  I had used her curved piecing method on several of my projects.  

I had intended to enlarge this pattern to make a much bigger wall hanging using a black batik fabric for the background with very bright batiks fabrics for the tulip.  Another quilt to add to my project list for 2013!

Cyprus Star

I have decided to show you some of my early, very early pieces of work.  I made this wall hanging when I lived on the mediterranean  island of Cyprus in the late nineties. 
I made two Cyprus Star but I only finished this wall hanging.  Why?  The other star has a brown background fabric and I do not enjoy working with brown fabric.  I am going to add a picture of this other star when I remember where it is.  And add it to the UFO's that need to be finished in 2013!!!    
I will try and blog about other early pieces of work next week.
