Well, have to start the page off somewhere, so here goes. This quilt has been sitting unfinished in the sewing room for about 2 years. Finally managed to put it on the frame and get it quilted.
I am really pleased with the finished article and while it wasn't ever to be anything special, I have continued to think of it as Ann's quilt. The fabrics were bought in Nambour when I was enjoying a lovely break with Ann who had left the local area years ago to resettle on the Sunshine coast. I had a great holiday and really appreciate her sight-seeing abilities.
Hence the quilt has been called "Musical Memories" to commemorate Ann's musical abilities and the memories we share from our school days. I now just have to work out how to get the quilt to her without it costing an arm and a leg!!
Not a bad weekend's work.


  1. Hi Karen!

    I saw you are an expert quilter (why don't you present yourself on your proflile?), while I'll never sewed a quilt larger of 50 cm... but give me time... I'm learning and training myself!
    Have a good day,
