This is the first quilt I ever made. It took me three years to finish piecing the top – I kept doing tiny bits then putting it away. Having finally, last year, quilted it and bound it, it makes me really happy. I love the colours – even though the piecing is pretty slapdash. It’s layered with a cheapy fleece blanket and the quilting is minimal – just straight lines across.
Here’s the next one I finished, as a combination birthday/Christmas present for my sister. I don’t have a photo of the whole thing, but this one was done as a sort of log cabin pattern. She requested black:

The green and yellow tumblers quilt is a gift for my other sister – who is currently putting up with quilts all over the sitting room floor with great patience. The photos are all out of focus because I just got a new camera which I haven’t got to grips with yet.
