Virtual Quilting Bee Sampler

This is the longest-running project for me so far. I started making this as part of Amy’s QAL last year, and then when the top was completed, made the slightly ambitious decision to hand-quilt it. Living in Queensland, the thought of sitting under a quilt hand-quilting is really only possible in Winter, and so I have spent many evenings stitching away at this project. It has been really fun and lovely, but yes, totally over-ambitious and a learning curve. This quilt is far from perfect, but it taught me lots, it is finished and it is mine. And that’s exciting. ๐Ÿ™‚

Science Fair Quilt

Loved making this quilt. It came together really easily and wonderfully. This was a gift for my husband for father’s day.

Fussy hubbyย wanted bright colours not on white or grey background, soย I even used my favourite basic – black sketch – as the background. That’s how much I love fussy hubby. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The coloured fabrics are Mod Century from a Moda jelly roll.
