more quilts

We had quite an amazing storm here yesterday - power out for a couple of hours, and the sky turned so dark at around 4:00pm that it was almost as though night had already fallen. Actually I love storms like this - with the rain pelting down, lightning continually lighting up the sky and the thunder crashing around you - I find it quite exciting, and I love this reminder of the power and beauty of Mother Nature.

Poor little Ollie wasn't quite so keen - shaking and jumping with fright at every loud clap of thunder. Lots of cuddles were required!

Above are several quilts tops finished - only one of these has actually been quilted and finished (oops; better get that organised!). They are -

top left: another view of the sampler quilt shown in a previous post

top right: 'Persian Tiles' quilt, pattern designed by Carol Lewis, made in 'Kashmir III' fabrics

bottom left: sampler quilt made with hand pieced blocks, machine pieced sashing, cornerstones and borders

bottom right: '12 Fat Quarter Quilt' designed by Lorna Corcoran and made in the William Morris-inspired 'Morris Workshop' fabric by Barbara Brackman. This one was finished as a birthday gift for my sister.

And hopefully my French Braid quilt will be added to the list of finished quilt tops very soon. Now, to get the quilting organised.....


  1. Very nice miss t! I love your fat quarter quilt colours... and your kashmir looks great too. Would love to see the sampler close up...

  2. Hi Tania
    You won my giveaway - and I'd love to send you the Cath Kidson bag. I can't seem to find your email address. It would be great if you could email me with your postal address - my email is on my profile.
    Cheers (and congrats)!
