This is the first art quilt I ever made. It's called "There Are Flying Geese In The Circle Of My Life", and I made it for a Lyttelton Quilters' challenge, to make a quilt that represented me and my life. This hangs at the bottom of my stairs. Fortunately, I've got over giving my work preposterously long titles.
Not long after that, I did some quilt designing, and published a couple of patterns. Only a couple, as my pattern producer stopped doing it. This wallhanging gets lots of comments, and hangs in my living room. It looks much nicer in real life, but I can't find an actual photo of it.
I made this quilt for a male friend of mine, who didn't have much in the way of belongings after returning to NZ from overseas. Again, the actual quilt looks better than the pattern photo. It's a queen size (large double ) quilt.
Above is another queen size quilt I made for my "adopted" daughter Rachel, one of Sophie's close friends. I only made one more queen size quilt after this, for Sophie's (now former) boyfriend, Erlo. I was fed up with making things that size, and quilting them was hard on my back and shoulders.
And in the midst of a cold raw winter's day, with the Shortest Day approaching fast, here's a lovely poppy that's brightening up my deck.
