Quilting for Rosemary & Shannon

Hello Quilty Friends!

Welcome & HELLO 2023!
What a fantastic year it's going to be.
I had a slow start back to quilting this year - an extra long holiday lounging around, mountain biking, sewing & odd jobs around the house & seeing 3 of my 4 adult kids & ALL of my grandchildren!
Of course here in New Zealand it's summer & in Northland it's HOT & HUMID - so that makes getting going sluggish. But I'm here & I have 4 lovely quilts to share with you plus a couple of new additions to my quilts for sale.

Shannon's grandmother originally made this quilt, piecing and hand quilting it, but never finished it.
Shannon did a wonderful thing, she unpicked the hand quilting, replaced the suspect borders to refresh the quilt top but still honoring her grandmother. For a newbie to quilt making, I believe Shannon did a lovely job, I'm sure there will be years of comforting cuddles for this quilt!

Over my holiday break I made another quilt for my shop, as well as some pretty custom quilted pouches made from vintage linens.
