Perfect Quilts

Perfect Quilts

Perfect quilts can be glorious, beautiful, resplendent and breathtaking. However, perfect quilts aren’t always what they seem to be. You may be surprised to know that all quilts can have imperfections, and at some stage, most quilts have given the quilt maker a certain amount […]

Blessings and Joy

Blessings and Joy

This time of year is about sharing with friends and loved ones. It is also a time of reflection and a time to give thanks for the blessings that come our way. For me, and for many people around me, this year certainly has had it’s […]

Feeling Groovy

Feeling Groovy

For those of us who can remember, the late 1960’s was a time of massive change and excitement. The revolution was in progress and we were Feeling Groovy. There was no capacity for bland in music, fashion or the people. The hippy movement flourished and flower […]

Coconut Ice

For many decades, coconut ice has been a sweet treat that could always be found at school fetes, cake stalls and markets. In family kitchens across Australia, batches of this pink and white confection have been made many times. Not only is it quick and easy to make, inexpensive […]

Quilters … step away from that fabric!

It is a truth universally acknowledged that quilters love fabric. And, why wouldn’t we? Fabric is utterly desirable. The beautiful colours, sumptuous prints and endless possibilities set our pulses racing. There is nothing wrong with loving fabric. In fact, as a quilter, it is totally necessary to […]

Quilter’s Tell-tale Signs

Quilter’s Tell-tale Signs

Once upon a time, when I was a fledgling quilter, I recall making my first quilt in blissful ignorance of what was to eventuate. Little did I know that it was the beginning of a life-long obsession, and the quilter’s tell-tale signs were already in place. At first, I […]

Dance of the Baubles

Dance of the Baubles

It happens every year. Although we have twelve months to plan for Christmas, many of us leave everything until the last minute and December becomes a month of manic frenzy combined with merry good-will to all. The myth of a jolly family of rosy-cheeked children singing carols as they calmly decorate the tree […]

Fiesta Time

Fiesta Time

Don’t you love it when you see a photo of a quilt that takes your breath away? My friend, Linda Reim’s quilt, Fiesta, did exactly that. Linda’s colourful collection of Fiesta dinnerware  inspired her to make this glorious quilt. The blocks are a mix of vibrant Kaffe Fassett prints […]
