Scrappy Mountain Majesties Quilt.

I made this quilt top quite a while ago and decided it was time to quilt it.
I first learned this block from a Lynne Edwards book and it was on a smaller scale.
This is Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy mountain Majesties.  I liked Bonnie's big chunky blocks.

I used a variety of fat quarters in warm, rich tones.

 I kept the quilting fairly simple.  Vertical lines on the outer border then a continuous feather in the next and an all over pattern for the center section.
I watched Lyn Durbin's excellent tutorial Loopy Clams.
Here is the link for the video.
 It is a very easy, free flowing design to stitch and I could guide my machine with one hand - lots of fun!

 I love the texture created with this pattern.

Near the end now......

Back of the quilt.   
So another one done - always a good feeling!
Happy sewing til next time

Pastel Baby Quilt

This is a baby quilt I made with left over Drunkards path blocks from another quilt.
I sashed it with simple squares.
Most of the fabrics are hand dyed, some by me, some by my friend Irene and some from a fabulous stall at the Edinburgh quilt show.

I like quilting on plain fabric as it really shows up the quilting.
I used one layer of Soft and Bright wadding and used a pale blue thread throughout for the quilting.

The quilting is all free motion, umarked and worked on my Gracie frame with my Janome 1600P.

I had just enough of this beautiful batik for the binding. Perfect!

The back...

I really enjoyed making this one. It was a blast.

It is for sale, £60 plus postage. Email me at if interested.
Onto the next quilt now..........

Mug Rugs

This week my eldest daughter left school and is university bound in September.
I made these mug rugs as thank you gifts for her teachers.

They are easy to make.
You need 1 x 4.5" square
16 x 1.5" squares

Sew together, quilt, trim and bind.

I added a couple of leaves and a flower made from a Suffolk Puff.

This one was for her art teacher.  I didn't think he would want a pretty flower!

Here they are, all ready to go with a new mug and a Flake.
Thanks for visiting today.
Enjoy your weekend.
