First Blog

Welcome to my blog!

My daughter created this for me as a surprise - part of my 5#th birthday present.  So - after much trepidation on my part and patient instruction on her part - I am going to give it a go. She knows I am an obsessed quilter and keen follower of many, many quilting blogs ....so thought it was time I joined in the fun and did a bit of sharing too :)

I have been quilting for over 20 years but in recent years my interest has largely been in reproduction quilts (American civil war era and the 1800's) - so be warned there will be a bit of a bias that way.

Here are some photos of my more recent quilts -  you might recognise the patterns of Karen Cunningham and Di Ford among them...

    1. Hi Miriam, Thanks for your nice comments. The quilt you asked about is a pattern called 'Starlight' by In the Beginning fabrics using the Floragraphix III fabric line - but from 2008 I think. It is the quilt on my Blog header too at the moment. Hilda
