Quilt number 1: The ten year itch


This was my first ever quilt.  It keeps us warm in the winter time.  It was a pull out over winter project which I started when I was nineteen.  Fast forward ten years and I finished it! Talk about losing motivation. It is machine pieced and hand quilted (225 squares).  These are not colours I would choose today but it still has a nice 'country/homemade' feel to it.

Quilt number 2:  Isabella's baby quilt


I started this quilt when I was only nine weeks pregnant with Isabella.  Pattern is my own and fabrics are from Patchwork on Central Park.  She has outgrown it now as she has progressed to a bed. But it sits folded on her chair in the corner of her room.  Machine pieced and hand quilted.

Quilt number 3:  Juliette's baby quilt


This quilt was also started while I was pregnant (and didn't know the sex).  I chose the colour scheme of orange, green and brown as I thought this was pretty safe. Pattern is from Homespun magazine and fabrics are from Patchwork on Central Park. Machine pieced and hand quilted.

Quilt number 4:  Indianna's baby quilt


This quilt was made for my friend Karen's baby - Indianna. It is my first attempt at machine quilting. Pattern is from Quilts Baby book and fabrics are from various places!
