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.

Fabric storage pods

I recently made these fabric "pods", to a pattern from Beth Studley. They are supposed to have hanging loops, which I omitted.
The patterns consist of a round quilted body with darts, with an inserted round base. A binding around the top completes the pod. Extra fabric encloses the seams.

The larger pods were made with Alison Glass fabrics and a repro paisley.

The smaller pods were harder to make as there were many more, and smaller darts to sew. I had not made darts since my (unhappy) home economics lessons in middle school. But, these are colourful and cheerful - so I hope that they  prove useful. Already, my collection of safety pins has moved across to these.
