Stars in Your Eyes

Rated three stars and I would agree if you have never made ‘Y’ seams before and initially I found it so difficult that I hid it in a bag for two years! The second time I tried it I didn’t have so many problems just by slightly adjusting the technique ie mainly keeping the needle down the whole time when adjusting the fabric

Stars in Your Eyes

Rebel With A Rotary

Rated one, but I would give it one and a half as it requires greater accuracy than Botanical Gardens as there are more pieces cut on the bias

Rebel with a Rotary



A close up of the butterfly, I made it a bit bigger than the one in the book


All finished and bound in batik which has nearly all the same colours as the leaves


With the book for comparison – pretty close but I squeezed a few more leaves in!

The Woodpile

Finished woodpile


Rated with two stars, but I found it easy as there is no need to match seams and points – just relax and enjoy!

Geese Around the World

Flying geese around the world

Same rating as The Woodpile but I found it much harder!

Botanical Gardens


I started this quilt first but dithered so long over whether to keep or get rid of the border that I completed a lot of other quilts before biting the bullet and removing the border. This is so far, the only full size project I have completed from the book


I finished the top last year but only quilted it recently. It will soon be going to a new home, so I better get that label done!

A Little Silhouette

Rated two stars, not too difficult if you have completed Spring
