Quilts I want to do
I made this quilt for my daughter who sometimes suffers with depression. I wanted to make her a cheerful quilt, and the Quatrefoil pattern seemed just perfect. It started out being a lap quilt, but I ended up adding more borders at the last minute, so now it's twin size. And, of course, since I added the add'l borders, I did not have enough flannel for the backing, so I ended up piecing the back with leftover blocks from other quilts I made. I only had layer cakes and jelly rolls to use for this quilt, so I used my 4.5" Sizzix die to cut all the squares. The layer cakes were a mixture of Zoey Christine and Fresh Lilacs. I used some Zoey Wisteria jelly roll strips for the binding. The borders were yardage of Violet Butterfly Garden fabric by Timeless Treasures. It was such a beautiful purple fabric with little butterflies. The little butterflies made me smile, so I'm sure this quilt will put many smiles on my daughter's face.

I'm a member of Bristol Quilters in England. I made this quilt for our tri-annual quilt fest happening between the 1st - 3rd June 2017. It is the first quilt I have entered into an exhibition. I used a walking foot to quilt it and variegated thread. The moment I say Jenny's pattern Star Burst I knew I had to make one myself. Looking at the quilt just makes me feel happy. Thank you Jenny.
I made this quilt for my sister for Christmas 2017. The pattern is called Tennessee Waltz and she is 110” square. There are a total of 81 blocks that are 9” finished and 6 borders, including a pieced border. The best part is that she is made entirely from scraps! I didn’t buy a single cut of fabric to make this quilt (except for the backing). I had a ton of scraps in my stash and lots of partial precuts that I had no idea what to do with. Then, lightbulb! This beauty was born.
