New year awaits

During 2012 I have been working on lots of different projects. Mostly class quilts for this coming year. Here's a selection....
 Sunflower - reproduction scrappy flowers with lots of scraps in the sashing

 Snowballs - foundation pieced at random with a fabulous big print border

The centre of this top started life as a linen table cloth with embroidery and a very large blank centre. It just called out for some applique (the vase etc) then I couldn't resist some tiny hexagons!
 Zoom in to see how the hexagons echo the embroidery. Finally a vintage curtain fabric border.
 This is Hatchet but I don't seem to have a finished pic. It's all pinned and ready for quilting too

 Piecing, applique, curves and foundation piecing - it's all here.

Summer school project for Hobbysew next week. 
  And this is a sneak peak at a quilt coming out in April Homespun - scrappy again.
Can you see a theme here?
Anyway I'm ready and rearing to go for this year's classes with lots of new projects.
Hope I see you somewhere soon! Check out my CLASSES list on the sidebar.


  1. Your quilts are STUNNING! They take my breath away. I am a new glad I found your blog! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. these look awesome! Particularly love Hatchet and the Snowball quilt. Wish I wasn't clear on the other side of the world!

  3. Absolutely love the tablecloth applique quilt with the little hexagons - the colours are gorgeous too! A very clever idea and so nice to see the tablecloth recycled ..or should it be "upcycled"?!

  4. It's great to see so many new wonderful exciting quilts!! Looks like we'll be using lots of scraps this year.

  5. You have been busy putting together great designs that can be made by using the mass of scraps that we Quilters seem to acquire. Well done again for great designs.

  6. The quilts are gorgeous and INTRICATE! I just about jumped out of my chair when I saw the print with the flower, Chinese lanterns. :) Wow!

  7. You design the most gorgeous stuff! I'm so impressed by the variety of designs you come up with. Wonderful!

  8. Love the Sunflower quilt ... are you the designer? If yes, will there be a pattern soon?
