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.

Sew Easy Pinwheels

Last week, I finished this little lap quilt. It is a quilt for Karin Hellaby's new book, "Sew Easy Pinwheels". Karin gave me the fabric in Amish plains, and I made the quilt over Christmas. Of course, it had to be machine quilted.

I took the quilt into the shop and this is the only pinwheel quilt that was made in dark colours - the rest are all very bright and lively and looked much better in my opinion. The photographer will be doing his work today.

I have to confess, machine patchwork doesn't "do it" for me anymore and although the result was OK, I didn't really enjoy making this quilt. Ah well, at least it was finished by the deadline!


  1. Sometimes we have to face a challenge and move on. At least you did it and know that you don't want to do it again.

  2. Pippa, I get your point! It was the same for me several years ago. I love hand quilting and wholecloths - that's where I feel at home.

  3. Ciao Pippa, grazie per essere presente nei miei blog.
    I tuoi lavori sono un piacere per gli occhi!
    A presto
