How many UFO do I have?
I have at least 10, a lap quilt and a cot quilt that will be finished at Friday class which is this week,and a large king sized quilt I have taken to be machine quilted professionally as it is too big to go under my machine.
I have also made a few different types of blocks and have decided to make them into mug rug's and place mats, these are just being finished I will post these later.
What colours do I like?
When I started quilting I was keen on red's and blacks anything bright and bold, now I seem to have changed I like Japanese type taupe's, I prefer calming colour and patterns.
What was the first quilt I made?
I made a cot quilt for my grandson who is 14 years old, that's how long I have been quilting (My the time flys when your having fun) It was from a book which I still have called The ultimate quilting & patchwork companion by Isabel Stanley & Jenny Watson it is a thick book with loads of small projects ideal for the beginner.
The quilt is on page 84 and is called a Country throw, I applique hearts, hands and I added cricket bats and balls, it is funny he is really in to cricket and plays for the county.
What other crafts do I do.
I enjoy card making and beading I have also done a course on silver clay it is very expensive but great fun to create your own silver pieces I made a heart. owl and a star for my daughter.
What fabric do I like plain textured or floral.
I go mostly for plains, textured and never buy floral unless it is a spectacular print and a Small print.
I also have just start to collect text prints I love to look at them and stroke them!! ( Anybody have the same problem just too nice to use>)
How many blogs do I follow?
I follow about 34 blogs this keeps me busy reading all the news about these bloggers.
What do I like best about blogging?
Keeping in touch with like minded people, and seeing what they have made or seeing where they have been travelling to.
Best thing with a blog you can see all the fabulous quilt and other items that they have made, and not forgetting the tutorials which are great fun I have made things from comfortstitiching,pinkpenquin and also the Zakka style book which I found on one of the blogs
Do you like gardening.
Yes I do. I have only a small city garden full of pots, solar lights and when the weather is better I put out a couple of tables and chairs.
I love being out in the evening as the light starts to go, the solar lamps throw pretty patterns on the paving this makes me feel calm and relaxed.
9.The seasons I like best?
It has got to be quilting season spring and autumn.
This has got to be Hellebore's that's out now and Penternon Phoenix which is a bell shaped flower which last
for most of the summer.
Do I have any pet?
No I don't. We did have red setters which where lovely ,very silly and great fun, now I like to travel so pets are difficult to get looked after.
