Looking back and finding treasures in quilt cupboard.
Lately I have been sorting through my pile of quilts and have come across some of my long lost treasures. I thought I would share some of my memories of making these lovely quilts, cushions and table runners with you.
First on the list is the Wreath cushion, made quite some time ago now. I loved making this cushion from start to finish. It was one of those projects where everything seemed to fall into place just the way I had imagined it.
The center flower has some of my most precious fabrics, the floral one being an all time favorite and I no longer have any left in my fabric collection. ( I wish I did )
I love, love, love brown, boring to some but I just can't live without it. So the leaves in this cushion are made with a beautiful floral brown fabric. Just perfect for the autumn weather we are currently having.
You can also see that I have a thing about circles, they seem to pop into all of my quilts and these ones are no exception.
I quilted this cushion with a fine silk thread in a echo fashion. Ooh I love silk thread too......
The pattern for the Wreath Cushion is available as a PDF download. You can find it here.

After being asked the question regarding how I sew around applique circles, I gave this some thought. It happened that I was working on some applique with circles in it and gave the video on my new phone a try. Wow! it worked fabulously. I had so much fun making the video I now have many more planned.
I can finally tell you all what has been keeping me so quiet !........ Iv'e been working really hard on projects for a book. I am so happy to show you the cover of my new book (Autumn Bouquet) coming out in August this year. Its been such a wonderful experience, something I have always wanted to do. It is filled with a great selection of projects with a range of small and large quilts, with applique techniques explained in detail. I will be so proud to place this book on my shelf along with all the other quilt books I own.
Last week we had a scheduled power cut for our area, meaning I could not do any quilting on the Roses quilt. This was the perfect time to pull my fabrics out and sort through them, folding them nicely and organizing them into colour baskets. I have been meaning to resort them for a while now. This was a great way to get reacquainted with my fabrics, finding all those precious fabrics that just make my heart race. Giving me ideas for my next project, another journey! Benny decided that would be fun and he loves to help, I think he secretly wants to be a quilter too.
