Quilts

I have finished the little quilt for my friend who lost her family in the dreadful bushfires.

For all the serious quilters who will look at this, I have to say I quilt for complete relaxation and always for someone, and often as a comfort or a celebration.

Here is Laura's quilt, my neice who went into a new flat.

It was made of Japanese fabrics.

This is Ruby's 4th birthday quilt...I have had this one on my blog when I gave it to her.
This next was for Erik...a "grand" nephew, while it is blue for a boy, the colour has photographed a bit too stongly "blue".
Gabe's quilt is one of my favouites.

I made this charm quilt for my blue room.

The plan was for this to occupy me for a long time,all hand pieced and hand quilted, but I become quite manic once I begin, which somehow defeats the purpose.

I have many more but I don't want to overstay my welcome.

I don't know much about "quilting" but I know what I like and these are stunning.
They absolutely flow with comfort and love...and to think they are all pieced together by hand...so special.

Thankyou all for the encouragement
Olwyn...I just repeated the same shape throughout the quilt never using the same fabric twice.
, I am not sure but I think that is what is called a "charm" quilt

These are all so beautiful! I want to learn how to quilt so badly, but have restraining myself as I know that really, what I really want to do is buy lots of fabric. :)

Thank you for your recent visits to my blog. Re that last comment about the commission, yeah, that would have really irritated me too!

These are so beautiful. I used to quilt but all is sadly now behind me. I know how addictive it was. You are such a dear person to make for someone who is grieving.
