Glenbrook Saturday

Two lovely quilts to show you from class.
This is Kerrie Mckeon's Nancy Horsfall quilt. I love this little quilt.


The picture below is my version.
Rhonda who is renowned for her lovely hexagon quilts such as insanity has completed another beautiful mosaic quilt, this is a smaller version of an antique quilt she bought in the U.S last year.
The pattern is available from her shop Post Office Patchwork Glenbrook.

As we are looking at mosaics I thought I would add one of my own quilts, this is Bumble-Bee a quilt I designed after my trip to England.
I noticed a few of the medallion quilts I saw had borders added to the centre piece sides first then top and bottom rows, I thought this was an interesting design element as most medallions add borders each side of a centre panel.
Just a reminder that my original Quilt designs and images are copyright protected.


  1. Hi Karen,

    Congratulations on your Blog!! just stumbled on it and I'm thrilled you have taken the plunge :)

    A lovely looking blog - and all the quilts look wonderful.

    Looking forward to getting back to class and catching up.


  2. Hi Karen. Glad that you have enabled your comments section. Pleased to see you dip your toe in blog waters. I don't think you'll be disappointed. In a funny way, showing your work to a wide audience will actually protect it. The more people who see your quilts, the more they will recognize that what some pass off as their own, is actually yours.

  3. Hi Karen, Welcome to blogland. I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as I do. I am currently working on your Irish Circles with Susan from Patchwork on Stonleigh and I am really enjoying it.

  4. Nice to see you now have comments and i'm loving the photos.
