Quilting Time...

I've been busy making bears and finishing off orders so it was a nice break to have a day of quilting. I decide to make a Quilted Clock for my neice who has just had a baby. So as well as the bear I still have to make for him I thought the clock would be something a little different. So with the help of fellow quilter Linda Graham - Soft Clox who gave me some hints and tips I created this golly clock.I was very pleased with the finished result even though a few small errors but hopefullyI'll not make those mistakes with the next one.

I have made a few quilts over the last few years . My first one was a golly quilt which I designed. It was a lot of work and had to be unpicked and the blocks resewn - nobody told me you had to measure the blocks and my cutting out was not very good but I was happy with the finished result.

This quilt I made in a class with my quilt group "Fat Quarters". It was designed and taught by Margaret Smith. Sadly Margaret recently lost her battle with cancer so I was pleased to have done this class with her and to have finished it so she could see it.

The next quilt I made for my sister-in-law Sue. It was 18months in the making but from what I hear from some quilters that's not a long time. I had made another quilt from the same design in a class with AnnFerguson from Quiltopia.


  1. Wow Lesley! The clock looks GREAT. The quilts too, and thank you for mentioning me! It's really nice to see a quilt in its home. Cheers,
