I've now been quilting for three and a half years. This blog is my personal quilting diary, that charts my progress (and occasional regression) from the start. I use it so I can look back at my past projects...and hopefully see my skills improve!

Lap Quilt Finished

Have found time to finish a lap quilt made up from blocks completed as part of the Intermediate Patchwork course I finished recently.  The course was great fun!

Playing with TAP

I ordered a pack of Transfer Artist Paper last week out of curiosity and without any real plan in mind.  Although I am busy making bears for the Teddies Worldwide online show at the end of the month, I found time to play with it.

I used a photo of three teddies I designed and made last year as the centre piece of my pinkeep.  I used 1930 reproduction fabrics scrappily to frame the photo.  I added silk ribbon, mother of pearl buttons, beads and lace to complete the heart shaped pinkeep.

Last week was my son James' first wedding anniversary.  I made them a memento of their wedding day and placed it is a picture frame.

I really enjoyed creating a little crazy quilt.  I adapted a pattern of Allie Aller's for the project.  The photo isn't great.  There is some reflection from the glass.
