My main blog (Oak Tree Cottage) is really a personal diary, so I've decided to split out the quilting side of my life for two reasons. I would like this blog to become a permanent journal of all my creations, and plan to gradually add pictures and descriptions of quilts long finished and gone from my collection, as well as current and recently finished projects. I also wanted a blog where I could play with fancy backgrounds and generally "pretty" up. I'm currently investigating digital scrapbooking, if I didn't already think I wasted too much time in front of the computer, it's about to double LOL!
Anyway, just to get us started, here's a picture of one of my favourite quilts, it's on my bed most nights and is one I made in (about) 1995, soon after we moved into our current home. As soon as I find my original quilt journal I'll put a more definite date on it. It was made for the spare bedroom which has a lavender carpet, but has somehow migrated into the main bedroom!
Extra Note: I've found the journal, the quilt was started in August 1997 and finished on 10th July 1998, the pattern was called "Andrews Stars" and the wadding apparently came from John Lewis! The quilting is a very simple grid sewn in the ditch.
