Fall Blogger's Quilt Festival: My entry


I have contemplated which of my quilts to enter this time around and had a hard time deciding. At the end, I settled on my sampler(s):


I chose these samplers because they were my first project. Initially, they were meant to be one quilt but after years of neglect, halving them made more sense.

I begun working on them in September of 2002. They are paper-pieced and machine-quilted. I love the colours, fresh, clean and vibrant. Both girls have their version on their beds to cuddle with.

They also mark the beginning of my quilting journey, a passion that has saved my sanity since becoming a (working) mum and has allowed me to connect with people while I am working on a project for them.

Very pretty piece and a very sensible solution to a problem.

I'm all thumbs when it comes to paper piecing but I'm about to learn properly.

PP is a great way to get perfect points & matching seams! I love it for NYB quilts.
