My newest quilt.....

Oh my word, quilting is addictive. I can't stop collecting vintage fabric with a view to making more and more quilts and throws.

here's my latest, I love working in pale colours and this random selection of fabrics with a floral theme spoke to me, I used a lot of the fabrics on the reverse side to give a soft, faded look

It also gave me the excuse to use this large white bobble trim I have been hoarding

I used hydrangea flowers cut from a larger piece of fabric for some of the squares and then used long strips of the same pattern to make a border

I like to add a 'Homemade' label to each piece I make to remind me that I am not in pursuit of perfection, just pleasure.
