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!

On the Back Burner

I have made a good start on the Flowering Urn Medallion Quilt but it will now need to sit on the back burner, as I need to be making teddies for the Hugglets Teddies Festival in Kensington Town Hall,  London on the 14th September.  I have had a six month break from teddy making, due to severe headaches after a head injury in January.  The headaches have reduced in frequency and I now feel up to going back into my workroom.  I need to feel well and focused when making my one of a kind bears.

A teaser photo of my latest bear:


The flowering urn quilt will be worked on during my patchwork group meetings for a while. I will need my needleturn 'fix'!

    1. Hi Glenda
      He is a sweetie, if I do say so, myself. Poor chap will have to wait until September for his new home...but I'll give him some cuddles to keep him happy in the meantime! xx

    1. I love spending time with others all sewing away. Joining a patchwork group was a great move for me. We all had a great day out at the Quilting Championships last week.
