Re making

Sorry I have been slack in posting but I am madly re making a quilt design of mine. I have been commissioned to make a quilt that was in " Homespun " a while back . The quilt has a folk art style about it , and was made to commemorate the wedding of my Grandparents, Reginald and Rita Nelder.
I named the quilt Reg and Rita.

A young couple will be celebrating 1 year of marriage next month and chose my quilt to be their gift to each other. How romantic.

I love to needleturn , but sometimes machine applique would come in very handy.

They have asked that I make the quilt as similiar to the original as possible. Hard when the original quilt was made with alot of my favourite scraps at the time.


  1. I particularly love the centre vine. It has a nice feel to it.

  2. have fun with it. I think quilts are a great way to commemorate wedding anniversaries. favorite pieces of fabrics or scraps are not easy for me to part with!!

  3. I like it a lot. Have we seen the original one you made?
