I am a quilter living in Woodbridge, Suffolk who has made quilts since I was a teenager. I also ring bells! Both are great British traditions....I will try to feature some of my antique Welsh and Durham quilts, the quilts I make myself, my quilting activities and also some of my bellringing achievements. Plus as many photos as I can manage. NB: Double click on the photos to see greater detail, then use back button to return to the main page.

Quality Control

Here are my two cats, Monkey and Snowy, who carefully check all quilts and textiles in the house for quality and comfort. Our previous cat, Cloud, was a handsome and very exotic stray who had been left behind when neighbors moved away. After much research, I discovered that he was a Siamese-Bengal cross. Hence the choice of breeds for kittens - Oriental and Bengal. But its impossible to replace a pet and these two are very different. Mostly they are well behaved but a major defurring operation does have to occur before any quilt show, to ready entries and get rid of dark and light hairs.
