Lockdown Achievements

 Here's your chance to share photos of any quilt/project you've been working on. There's no time limit, and please include a description of the work - especially if it has a special purpose or meaning. It's all your work - enjoy!

I've changed this a bit, as the images in the gallery had the text all over them and couldn't be seen without it. So the gallery of images is still there, and the pictures in it can be viewed separately - and larger (esp if you use Ctrl and +, or Cmd and + for Macs)! The description is below the gallery, just scroll down until you find the quilt(s) you want to know more about. The advantage of this is we can be more generous with the descriptions!

The tree offers shelter and protection. The important factors of my life, Home, Health, Family, Creativity, Nature, Happiness, are stencilled in using a Sharpie pen.

Hand-sewn hexagon quilt started 45 years ago and finished during lockdown.
Mixed fabrics, some Laura Ashley , sheeting, and fabric from dresses made for my daughter. Machine quilted to get it finished. It is now in her  ‘Bongo’ camper van she calls it Retro and loves it as it brings back many memories. One UFO out of the way.

This little quilt was my first finish of Lockdown One in March last year.
It is the Mini Mindful quilt by Fabric and Flowers.
I chose fabrics from my Kona solids that all had fruit in their colour names.

This photo popped up, as they do from time to time, on my Facebook page reminding me of a posting last year.  It is one of the “Trad Jazz” patterns that I have designed and taught for about 10 years or so.

Here is a piece made responding to Susan Chapman’s lock down challenge ‘looking through’. 142cm x34cm. ‘Oak’ a study of the oak tree at the bottom of my garden. Includes hand dyed, printed, discharged and dyed fabrics with appliqué and hand quilting.

The Youngish Quilters of the QGBI designed this BOW.
I chose to make two of each block every week so that I could donate one to Project Linus and keep the other.
Judging by the comments on the Guild’s members group on FB, I think there may have been more ‘not exactly youngish’ quilters taking part than those it was designed to appeal to!
It was good fun and a chance to spruce up our 1/4” seams.
