Here is a sample of some of the quilts I've made over the past couple of years. I hope you enjoy looking through them.
Quilt: Jewel Box
Fabric: Bliss by Bonnie and Camille
About: This is a quilt that I put together as part of a Jacob's Ladder workshop that we held. I love how this block will throw up a completely different quilt depending on which way you rotate the block or by changing the position of the light and dark values in the block. It's a shape shifter and I love that quality in a quilt.
Fabrics: Park Avenue by 3 Sisters for Moda
About: I designed this quilt around the Rocky Road to Dublin Block and it was published in Australian Patchwork and Quilting Vol 21 No 11.
Quilt: Briar Rose
Fabrics: Strawberry Fields
About: This quilt was adapted from the Missouri Star You Tube Tutorial. It features the Arkansas Crossroads block and you can download a free pattern for it here.
Fabrics: A variety of Reds and Neutrals - many of the fabrics are French General.
About: I designed this quilt for Australian Homespun and the pattern for it can be found in their No Vol edition.
Fabrics: Patisserie by Fig Tree and Co
About: I designed this quilt for Homespun magazine and it was featured in their No 83 Vol 11.4 edition.
Quilt: Northern Lights
Pattern: 4OT by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.Fabrics: Heritage for a Cause by Howard Marcus
About: I love Carrie Nelson's patterns and this was the second one of hers that I made. It is quilted in a gorgeous all over feather pattern and looks very olde world.
Quilt: Country Belles
Pattern: This quilt was a family effort. My Nana embroidered the crinoline ladies, I pieced it and my Mum quilted it. We entered it in the SA Quilt Guild show and this is us standing in front of it at the show.
Quilt: Ain't No Mountain High Enough
Pattern: A chevron pattern that I designed myself. You can download the tutorial for it here.
Story: I made this for my friend Alex's first baby. I blogged about it here.
Pattern: 1901 - I designed this quilt for Homespun Magazine and it was published in issue 92 Vol 12.1
Story: For this quilt I set myself a little challenge to make a star quilt with a layer cake and a charm pack. The name comes from Frasier Crane's appartment - no. 1901. I used to watch Frasier obsessively while sewing.
Quilt: Jane Says
Pattern: Jane Says. I designed this quilt for our Wallaroo Retreat in 2010. It is made using a Jelly Roll and you can read about it here if you like.
Quilt: Scarlett's Stars
Pattern: Jake's Stars by Carolyn Konig.
Story: The original pattern was for a cot quilt and I wanted to make it for my baby. By the time I got around to finishing it my baby was in a big girl bed, so I added some sashing and a border and...problem solvered!
Quilt: String Quilt
Pattern: I had seen heaps of tutorials for this quilt that used paper as a foundation, but I didn't fancy tearing away all of those papers so I used calico as a foundation instead. I love this quilt - it's my go to quilt when I want to snuggle and watch TV.
Quilt: Ethan's Carpenter's Star
Pattern: Debbie Maddy's Carpenter's Star pattern resized to fit a cot.
Story: I made this quilt for my baby boy. You can read about it here.
Quilt: Chocolate Box
Pattern: Open Day by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
Story: This was one of the earliest quilts I made. I am so glad I came across Carrie Nelson's pattern - her pattens are so well written and I learnt so much from it. Not least how to make flying geese!
Quilt: Disappearing nine patch
Story: Again, this is one of the earliest quilts I completed. It is made from a few Blackbird Designs charm packs. I still love it! It's a snuggly favourite.
