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.

Quilt off to Malvern....Molokama

My Hawaiian quilt Molokama has arrived safely at Grosvenor Shows for the Malvern quilt will also go to FOQ in August. There is a lot of work involved in these Hawaiian is all hand applique and hand quilting. Before the quilt could be posted, I had to apply a binding and a hanging sleeve. Plus, I had to thoroughly defur it of cat hairs, which were very visible on the white and navy fabric. Some wool fibres from the wadding were also to be seen and were removed.

I had to return the hand applique cup as well, which I wrapped up securely and enclosed with the quilt.
I enjoy sending the quilts off to one or two quilt shows, as I think Hawaiian quilts are very striking and enjoy sharing them. This quilt was entered in last years FOQ but was not finished in time. But this year...

My next project is a Wholecloth quilt, which I am in the process of marking.


  1. I shall check it for cat hair and look forward to see it next week. Good luck with it.

  2. Good luck at Malvern and the FoQ with your quilt! It's outstanding and I am keeping the fingers crossed for us both.

  3. beautiful. I agree the Hawaiian quilts always stand out.
