Mum's Quilt…proudly displayed on the Hills Hoist Gallery in Mount Isa…

It seems somewhat fitting that it’s taking me a year to post the photos of the finished quilt as it took me a year to actually finish sewing it. I shared the finished patchwork in May 2010, so now I share with you the finished quilt.

Mum's Quilt

I gave this quilt to my Mother as a gift at the end of last year and these photos were taken in her backyard while we were on holiday at Easter time.  I still can’t believe the amazing job that they did on it at Altogether Quilting.


I’ve started work on another quilt, only this time for my Nana.  I started it back at the end of last year and I’ve not managed to progress as far as I’d like I really need to dedicate some serious time to it.  I’m going to make it a priority for the next month.  I swear I am…

Mum's Quilt

I’m still working on my rainbow crochet blanket.  It’s taken a hit because of holidays but I’m going to get back on to it.

So many things to work on so little time.

  1. Your quilting s are gorgous! I think will try a more less with this joy colours.
    I’m living in Europe, Hungary, Budapest – I have relatives in Australia. They went to Sydney before the II. World War.
    I was then a little girl – now I’m an old woman. But Like very much quilting and crochet too.
    Thank you all your beautiful things!
    With love

  2. What a beautiful quilt! I can see why it took you so long to finish. I’m tempted to make a very small quilt to see how I get on, but it’s way out of my comfort zone …

    • You know, I’d say “do it”. I thought it would be really hard, but it’s quite easy. Just pick a simple pattern. (Which is what I always do.. )

      I find the thing I struggle with the most is making the time to sit down and just get it done. Motivation is a killer. But it’s so worth it in the end.
