Cathy made this fresh, pretty quilt with repro 1930s fabrics.
The borders are a nice soft linen type finish fabric. I haven’t quilted a fabric like this before and I must say it quilted up lovely.Super cute mini Hexies in the corners.
Cathy asked for the quilting to be kept nice and soft.
Perfect for this quilt.

My sister Peggy makes memory quilts. Recently she made this quilt for a friend whose Mother had passed.
Peggy fussy cut the dresses to use design features of the original garments.
Quilting started around the dresses
Cute backing fabric.

Jenny tells me this quilt is destined for the bed in their caravan. I hope she has many sweet dreams sleeping under it.

For a nice start to my new patchwork quilting year I made something for me.
I have called this quilt "Proud as" because of all the bright Peacock colours. When I set out to buy fabric for this quilt I hadnt planned to use colours like this but the feature fabric just leapt off the shelf at me, I went a bit crazy with feathers on this one, I love the way the feathers on the blue double flying geese shapes look a bit like a peacock tail.
The pattern for the Walk About quilt can be purchased online at Grizzly Gulch Gallery
It's a super easy fun quilt to make. If you ever need to make a quilt in a hurry use this pattern. For all you QOV makers this would be a super pattern.
