Another Nundle Quilt

This is another of my 'Cottage On The Hill' Nundle retreat quilts...... these are such fantastic retreats and then to come home with a finished top, which I did do on that occasions, is very satisfying.

Hexagon Magic

Fantastic pattern, purchased this pattern from Cottage on the Hill, just one template, two pieces to each hexagon, so simple, great way to use scraps, I think I have used a different piece of fabric in each of the hexagons in this quilt.

Mystery Swap...

Our club have done this little swap twice....paper bag swap...we have a group of people and we all do a row, which will be the first row of our quilt, this is put into a bag with a list if instructions of what you would like or not like in your quilt, you can even supply the fabric if you want, if not you can just have the fabrics that person would like to use .....then each month someone else takes your bag home and does a row, no one sees what the others are doing, and this goes on until all people who are in the swap (generally around 8-10 people) have made a row to go with your original row, this all goes into the the end of the swap you get your bag back with these lovely completed rows and then all you need to do is turn these rows into a is a fantastic fun way of doing a quilt.........the dark one was our first swap done about 5 years ago and the light one was done in 2005 (I think)

First Flannel Quilt

I made this a few years ago....I just love flannel.........its great to sew, and once washed it becomes so warm and cuddly.

Wall Hanging

Appliqued, pieced wall hanging, this was one of my earlier projects...I think it may be a Hatched and Patched Pattern.

MummsScrappy Quilt

Mumms Scrappy Quilt..... design....we had a quilting day last year and this was our project. What we did was to bring in all our scraps and over a couple of Thursday nights we met, with our scraps and swapped and cut and had everything read to sew on the day....... basically everyone just rummaged through every ones bit and pieces took what ever they needed, each person supplied their own background fabric, and this was my end result. It was a fantastic way to use up scraps as well as share some of those bits and pieces with some quilting mates.

Prezzie for Skiddles

21st present for a very special young lady Skye (Skiddles)....fabric as released as a fundraiser for cancer research (can't remember the name of the range)...Skye's Dad was diagnosed with cancer several years doing really well now, but I thought the choice of fabrics was right...
