One for him and one for her – crazy quilts

Well a pink one and a blue one at any rate. These two lovely quilts were made with fabrics from The Cotton Craft Company - six fat 1/4's plus a mini-bolt of 1.5metres of extra wide which has been used in the border, there is enough for the backing and binding - so extremely economical!     Also some lovely new wadding to try- can't wait!

Magic 4 Patch quilts by Valerie Nesbitt

Here are a couple of quilts that I just couldn't resist making!   The first used lovely Lewis & Irene fabrics that were also used to make a cushion (see Anne Baxter's workshop) and the other was made with fabric scraps given by a quilting friend as leftovers from her own quilt.

Tablerunner from Anne Baxter

Apart from flowers, who do quilters love most?  well more fabric of course!  So we hoped that Anne would love the bundle of fabric we chose for her as a 'thankyou' for our great filming day together - well look what she made with it!     Love it Anne - thanks again.

Wish quilt for the new addition to the family

This was made by Lyn using the modern charm quilt workshop as inspiration: she asked the family to each send a couple of wishes by email..then printed out their handwritten wishes,then traced the words onto the border and backstitched the words   Isn't it lovely! (and the new addition is gorgeous too!)

From little acorns……

We are always so pleased that our videos and workshops inspire others to join the happy band of textile addicts;  here is a lovely letter from a beginner who seems to have done just that:
I didn't have a sewing machine or knew how to use one just 6 months ago but have fallen in love with patchwork in the meantime and have bought myself a very basic, very cheap sewing machine.

More Turning 20 Again

Just a quick follow-up to the wonderful weekend at Dunford House.
I had my finished quilt top long arm quilted and then I did the binding myself.   I have given it to my son and daughter-in-law who are delighted with it and have attached a photo of the finished quilt for you.
I never thought I would have got as far as I did over one weekend and have to say I was so pleased with the result

Many thanks for all you help and advice especially with rotary cutting that I am now confidently using more and more(this is going to drive my husband mad).
