New to Blogging!

I have been contemplating starting a blog for some time now, and have finally taken the plunge.

Here is my first post on my first ever blog!

What I would like to start with is to show you some of my favorite quilts that I have made since I began quilting back in 2001.


This quilt is called Emma's Quilt and I made this quilt in 2008 for a niece. It is my own design and layout, however it features some very traditional quilting blocks. It is a log cabin quilt made with some of my favorite fabrics. The feature fabric is fussy-cut from Amy Butler's Lotus range called Wallflower in Cherry. (Is it true that the Amy Butler Lotus and Belle range has just been discontinued by the manufacturer? Oh no!! Must update my stash!)


This quilt is definitely one of my favorite quilts, with white fabric being one of my trademarks. I love white fabric in quilts, I think it gives them a fresh, modern look. This quilt was one of the first quilts that I have quilted myself on my domestic sewing machine.


Over the coming weeks I hope to post some more pictures of my quilts as well as pictures of my stash and works in progress!
