Made for the baby of a sailing family, I based this quilt on one I saw in an old Australian Patchwork & Quilting magazine. It was called Night Fishing by Cynthia Nicklin.
With his name embroidered as the boats name and his birthdate as the sail number, I added ‘And I shall sail away to the land of Nod’ in the bottom right corner hoping that it would have a subliminal effect. (If it was just that easy!)
And I had it quilted by Sue of Sue’s Top Finish as I really wanted to get it finished and hand it to the new owner.
Another child’s quilt in simple squares with a scrappy binding. I am still having trouble with blogging. I am trying to blog from my ipad and iphone as my recent photos are on them. Seemed a good idea but when I look at the blog they appear quite different on the different devices. Not all the posts were appearing. But I am determined to make it all work!

And the butterfly backing – a lovely Japanese fabric
I made this from vintage silk kimono and other silk pieces and embellished it with vintage buttons.
A scrap quilt in greens with a scrappy binding made for my daughter.
This was based on animal charm squares which were framed with a co-ordinating fabric to make 8 inch squares. Very simple which I like.
