Star Crossed Lovers by Fiona Callander

A mystery quilt in four issues of a magazine. I chose the fabrics from my stash and waited to see how it would turn out


Thinking of You by Michele Clarke

Light to Dark Spectrum by Teresa Dunn

I drew up the design on large graph paper and used that as a template for the quilt. I used some recycled fabric and the reverse of some fabrics. Hand and machine quilted.

The quilt is based on the Traditional Group Block of the Month challenge for 2012 by Jane Dickerson and features six of the blocks plus three of my own. The blocks are machine pieced and then hand quilted using the Quit-As You-Go method

Flower Baskets by Jan Godding

This quilt is very special to me. The hand quilted wreath blocks were hand sewn when my Mother was suffering from terminal cancer, the baskets were made by myself and friends. She and I talked and remembered wonderful times and I told her how precious she was to all of us. She saw it finished before she died.
