The customer quilts are coming off the machine at a good pace but there are always more on the shelves waiting, which is good. This is one of the latest ones, and was a pleasure to work on. The material was absolutely gorgeous, and it was pieced perfectly too, which meant there were no problems at all as we quilted. Keryn kept threatening to kidnap the finished product, it was so pretty.


Roses and more roses.....
The customer chose a panto of Keryn's called Damask Rose and it was meant for this quilt, it finished it off beautifully.
What a pity I didn't straighten out the bottom of it, where it was caught on the step stool; I assure you it was perfectly flat and straight. I don't know who it was destined for, but anyone would be glad to own this one.I've been sewing some blocks I had kitted up ages ago. I used some reproductions a friend had given me and they were very precious at the time. I kept putting off sewing these, because I liked the idea of having them all cut out ready and waiting, and if I finished them then I wouldn't have my 'kit' any more. Finally last week I gave myself a 'Listen, you idiot..." speech, in which I pointed out that if I finished all of these then I would have permission to cut out a whole heap of different blocks for a new kit-duh!

I made 18 of them and they'll be set on point eventually. I haven't decided what my new 'kit' will be, too many ideas to choose from, but I'll have fun looking through my pictures of old quilts in the meantime.
Spring has sprung and Keryn wandered around outside taking some photos today. I don't know what this pink flower is, some sort of bulb. The flowers last for weeks and I love the delicate colours.

I love reading your blog and have a real affinity for your quilting style. The rose quilt is spectacular too. I check your blog every day and love all the antique style quilts you've made.
Thought I'd better stop lurking and write.

I just recently found your blog and have spent several days going back through all the archives. What wonderful quilts and tutorials there are!! It would be very wonderful if you would have a link in your sidebar to the various tutorials so people like me can find them again in the future. I absolutely love the look of antique quilts and scrap quilts. You have inspired me to get back to doing more traditional quilts.

Your latest Singer is identical to my mum's machine she used back in the 1960's.
I've got an old 'New Home' I had in 1971 for my birthday. I don't use it now, but it lives in the wardrobe with my Janome! I mostly sew by hand - I must be a bit odd!!
