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.

Bigger Photos - I hope...

Collector quilt 7473 at Jen Jones - larger photos I hope!! See previous post for the details of this beautiful quilt. Now gone to a new owner...

The centre of the quilt..

Whole quilt, on Jen's famous fence...

The large leaves in the border - have seen this motif before, will have to look in the books to see where...


  1. Thanks for those! The central pattern is lovely and unusual - at least, I don't recall seeing something quite like it. The ever increasing spirals, the web-like swags between, the curved border leaves (are these variations on the standard beech leaf?*) and the little cable twists give the design a lot of movement. *Mary Jenkins shows how to mark those curved leaves in her Welsh Quilts book.

  2. There is a also a picture of a quilt with a similar center in Mary Jenkins book. I have seen the leaves in the boarder on several quilts in different book and it was called "Bent Leaf". Maybe there are different names for it!

  3. I am so impressed by the graduated spirals. They begin on the same side of the spiral and end in exactly the same place within the spiral. Amazing.
