Anna de Klerk's Cat Quilt

I had such fun with this quilt!!! It's a small quilt, raw-edge applique cats.

I have used a fleshy pink Isacord Polyester Thread to quilt the back ground of all the blocks and an olive green for the sashes.

2 different FMQ patterns for the 2 back ground colours.

Approx 30 hours of quilting and 3000m of thread in this quilt. This quilt can actually stand on its own!

Anna is very happy with her quilt. She booked her spot for another quilt!

I'm extremely pleased with this quilt!

Happy quilting!

Beryl's quilt 2

I have done this quilt fro Beryl a couple of weeks ago. I used a black Isacord thread for the quilting but you can't see anything because o the bright patterned fabric!
Happy Quilting!

So in between the Dear Jane Quilt I have played around with some free motion quilting on white Egyptian Cotton and then applied colour to one side...

I will be presenting a workshop on this at the end of July at Bernina Ontdekkers, Roodepoort, Gauteng, South Africa.  Email me if you are interested.
Happy Quilting!

Sue's Dear Jane Quilt

It's time to show the DEAR JANE! That's why I have been absent rom the blog...non stop busy with the DJ Quilt, for 6 weeks! 100 plus hours of quilting, approx. 8000m thread...

The quilting was done on the white fabric only, and ditching all around ALL of the colour pieces.

The first pic is the before...


Happy Quilting!

Cheryls' quilts

Oh My Goodness!!! The past 2 months has been hectic! During May I did 3 more quilts for Cheryl. She did not want heavy quilting on them so it's mainly ditches and borders. But she is very happy with them. 

After Cheryls' quilts, I have been working on a DEAR JANE - for 6 weeks!!! more on the DJ in the next post.
Happy Quilting!
