NY CAB 2011 I created this quilt using the V&A online Patchwork Pattern Maker tool. I had taken the photo on a recent trip to New York and am really pleased with the results - I now have a fantastic 'one off' momento of my trip.The quilt measures approxomately 2.8m x 2m and is made up of all cotton fabrics - some are plain fabrics but many of them have small patterns which I think adds another dimension. I will definately be using the Ptachwork Pattern Maker tool again - brilliant results and easy to use.
Faux Victorian Hallway I created this patchwork quilt as a homage to beautiful Victorian tiled hallways - not only does my 'tiled hallway' look fabulous but it also feels fabulous! Machine stitched and hand quilted measuring approximately 2 x 2 metres. In the background is another of my favourite quilts I made approximately 6 years ago. It is made up of jewel coloured circles, each made of 4 different fabrics on a black background with multi coloured polka dots. To make use of the 'waste' cut outs I cut them in half, sewed them together and created an unusual 3D border of flaps - under some of which I sneaked in some of my favourite fabrics which gives it a lovely sneak peek effect. It is machine stitched and hand quilted and measures 2 x 2 metres.
