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.

Quilts Looking Good....

I went to Quilters Haven today - the girls have done a great job of hanging the quilts. Many of these are very large quilts so several are displayed on tables.
I was busy pinning labels to the quilts - and writing a blog for the QH website.

 The teaching area at QH is fairly large - so it easily accommodated the quilts I had chosen. There are three Welsh quilts and fifteen North Country quilts - I think that this was about the right number.

 One of the Welsh quilts - the one with the zany centre by Annie Davies - will be going to Llanidloes soon, as will some of the others.

 The Gardiner basket quilt from Cawcrook looks nice hanging next to Annie Walton's wedding strippy (East Woodton, Northumberland).

The textures of these quilts is wonderful...

....and you can see why they were a favourite wedding present.

I also received a draft copy of my article on the Minerva exhibition for Popular Patchwork and am very pleased with the way it has turned out. It will be in the July issue, available at the end of June.


  1. You must be very pleased with the display Pippa, the quilts look wonderful and it must be great to see so many of your quilts on show together and so near to home. I can't wait to see them and am really hoping to be able to visit next Weds or Thurs. Will keep an eye open for Popular Patchwork as well. Best wishes

  2. Hi Pippa, I made it to Quilters Haven today to see your quilts and they are wonderful, it was great to see some of them for real after reading about them on your blog!

  3. Really lovely quilts Lynda - I love the detailed stitching and wish I could create something as beautiful as these creations. And he picture of the workshop reminds me of my auntie who is a big time quilter in the US. Her style is quite a bit different from these ones so I think I'll share your blog with her :)
