Favourite Designs.

My son has my camera at the moment taking photos of new tattoos he is designing, so I will post the photos from Blueberries on Thursday.
I thought I would post the two most popular quilt patterns.
The Trundel was the second quilt I designed and taught, so nervous when I first started to teach but had such lovely students they made it easy for me to relax and enjoy the journey. Twelve years later and still teaching the Trundle, some girls still making their Trundel, no names of course.

English Autumn is ten years old and seems to be the quilters quilt, no one wants to give this one away so it is usually kept for the maker.
One of the best compliments I can remember was from Anne when she finished her English Autumn, she said it was like reading a good book she just couldn't put it down and was sorry it came to an end.

Hope you enjoy the pics, home sewing today lovely rain and cool weather.
Thank you all for your comments and emails I will answer all your emails soon.

English Autumn

The Trundle.


  1. Who ever said you couldn't write a blog. Loving it.

  2. Gorgeous quilts, I can understand the makers wanting to keep them. Who would want to part with something so wonderful.
