The cheerful rooster fabric dictated the colour choices for this quilt. I made an oopsie down in the corner which was easily covered up by enlarging the rooster on the fabric via the scanner, then using the copy to make an applique rooster.

I enjoyed making this retro caravan cot quilt so much, each caravan was a little adventure. It also gave me a canvas to do lots of variety of machine quilting.

3 July 2017 So many people have asked me for this pattern that I need to clarify that I’m sorry but I don’t have a pattern. Below I have put the page of images I gathered from the internet and then copied them by hand to the size I wanted. I used a similar technique to this tutorial  http://sewlikemymom.com/the-ultimate-applique-post/ to turn the drawings into applique. Give it a go, it’s not that hard 🙂 The images below aren’t mine but belong to other talented people!

I’ve just finished this rainbow I spy quilt for a friend to take to her new grandson in the UK. There are some gorgeous fabrics around, I love the pukeko block and the little cowboy!

I made the top of this quilt some time ago but never finished it off. It was made to give away but instead has found a home on our cot for when Eli comes to stay. The blue sashing in between the robots is quilted with leaves and flowers.
