I've been searching for somewhere to photograph my quilt top (The Sopwell Ladies Basket Society Quilt) - and decided the fence at the end of my road would just have to do!! I just needed to do a quick photo shoot before I decide how to get it quilted. This quilt has been keeping me busy for the past few months - lots of techniques were used in the large blocks, including machine piecing, hand embroidery, and hand applique. This was designed by Gail Pan, an Australian designer, and was bought as a kit including all the fabrics and the set of patterns from Cross Patch, an online quilt shop based in Wales, here in the UK. The majority of the fabrics in this kit are from the Sequoia collection, by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts for Andover Fabrics. This has been an absolute pleasure to make, and it definitely won't be the last one of Gail's designs that I use! I've already got plans for making one of her festive ones, although I won't be starting that one just yet as I have a few other projects on my to-do list first!
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
