I have always liked creating things. I remember my mother sewing late in the night. I am one of nine children and mum would always be making new clothes, mending old ones or creating something that was needed for school. I loved to watch her at the machine, an old singer treadle, and she would talk about the fabric. I learnt to sew on that old machine.
I love applique. The nuns who taught at my school insisted on the neatest most even stitches and I have carried their lessons with me and love hand applique the best. Watching the fabric pictures come to life is a joy.
Quilting came about from a picture on a quilting magazine that I thought was really beautiful and from that moment I was hooked. Here was a hobby that combined my love of fabric and sewing and the possibilities are truly endless!
Our garden is a picture of colour and movement in the spring and summer. The roses bloom and are often trying to escape over the back fence. You can create your own garden masterpiece with this pattern. All the templates are supplied along with piecing instructions and handy hints. Confident beginners and experienced quilters will find much to engross them in this quilt. Wonderful for using all those lovely scraps you have left over from other projects
