Welcome

Welcome to my blog about my quilting journey! I started quilting in 2006 with a quilt of my own design which started as a cushion cover and ended up as a single bed sized quilt! Now I'm totally hooked....maybe obsessed is a better word for it.

Blogger's Quilt Festival - Pole Dancing!

This is the first year I have entered into the Blogger's Quilt Festival and this is my second entry and its in the Modern Quilts Category.

Last year I took part in the Something New Sampler quilt along at 13 Spools and then put the blocks together into this quilt for my niece for Christmas.

I used it as an opportunity to try out some different quilting.

I also worked Vanessa's name into the stippling along the right side. It took her a while to find it!

I think this is my favourite of all the blocks!


Nominations are open until 23rd May and voting is open 24th May until 29th May 2014. I'd love to be nominated but we'll see what happens! (If you like my quilt enough to nominate it you can do so here by adding a link to this blogpost.) Bit of a gratuitous plug there!

  10. What a great way to show off all your samples! It looks like it was designed that way and I love the way you have created the strips of FMQ behind.
