"Chaos Theory" - when I began making this, I wanted it to be ugly! I chose genuine scraps which were no use for anything else and didn't go together. (It was paper pieced on scrap paper and I used up random thread left on bobbins.)<br /><br /><br /><br
Ugly quilt made from scraps. I've seen some amazing "scrap" quilts posted here made with beautifully colour coordinated fabrics. This isn't one of them! The blocks are pieced onto 21 cm squares of scrap paper. The size was decided as it is the bigg
This quilt was hand stitched with contributions from 30 or so people. The fabric was 3 FQ packs from Aldi. plus quite a lot of Ditte from Ikea. I assembled it, backed it with fleece and quilted it using my embroidery machine and a hexagonal flower design
All stitched by hand. (Back view for Kim!) I find the best way to find those annoying last few papers is to hanging the top up and stare at it! This began at a workshop at Easter then about 35 people each made one of the flowers. Some had never tried
Edited to show both sizes. This was another idea I was brewing while I was away. The design is now in Engineered in Stitches. 160 x 260 and 200 x 300.<br /><br /> All made ITH except for a small gap to hand stitch. Extra inspiration came from the fa

I was challenged to make this by a good friend i have never met (yes, another Cutie!) I'm not even sure what to call it.<br /><br /> Any way, it was made entirely in the hoop with the exception of one seam in the lining and the final closure on the pi

Second attempt at an ITH quilt for a dolls house. This time I've stitched thin wire into the edges so it looks "draped". I've also included pictures of the bedroom curtains , some 12th scale knitting and a rag rug.
I was challenged to make a dolls house quilt with hexagons "in the hoop" of an embroidery machine. This is my first. It measures 10cm by 12cm and the hexagons are coloured with Inktense pencils. The major problem with dolls house quilts is that they
