Quilting in the Blood

There will be more of Grace's story and my convict links to share later.
At the beginning of my Blog, I said that I'd link Grace being a Rajah Convict to what I do today. 

Yes, I sew.  Even in my pyjamas.  Sometimes I set up in the lounge room, or on the dining table.

These hand appliqued blocks are made with lovely soft flannel fabrics.

Here they are made up and quilted. 

I'm making this Snails Trail wall hanging for my son Sam, who is 22.  He lives in Ballarat where he is a 3rd year Uni student.  He might get it before his next birthday...

This is Lucy's Dragon quilt.  It's all bound and finished off now except for sewing down the hanging pocket.  Lucy has just moved into a little flat and wants to hang this quilt above her bed.

The Evening Star Wall quilt hangs in my Loungeroom.

A selection of small quilts and decorations that I have made over many years for our Christmas celebrations at home.

A cushion I made as a birthday gift for my friend Ruth. 

and a little sewing set I made for myself, I made my friend Gae a needlecase from the same pattern in blue and grey.

There have been many other projects that I don't have photos of but I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my craft.



  1. Dear Bernadette,
