Yesterday I started a clear out of the built in wardrobe in my sewing room. It seems very congested at the moment and I do need to clear some stuff, so I've got out some older quilts from the top shelf and laid them out onto the bed for a bit of airing. I thought I would take this opportunity to show you a couple of quilts I made a long time ago.
This is quilt was a mystery quilt using Debbie Mumm fabrics (so this does date this quilt, this designer hasn't had a fabric range for years) which was run by Bramble Patch in Weedon by post. At the time I saw it advertised in one of the quilt magazines and I liked the style of fabrics. I can't remember how long the mystery went on for, but had a standing order and each month was sent a pack of fabrics and this is what I made
Here's a close up
And I even made a label too
This small quilt. just 24.5" square doesn't have a label (tut,tut!), but as the shop where I got the idea from closed about 2005/6 its probably about 2004-ish. Another collection of fabric, this time from Thimbleberries, who made country style fabrics. to make a nine block quilt of 6" blocks. These were using a fat quarter pack.
I hope you've enjoyed these old quilts.
