How many piece's in a quilt?

On a recent trip to The Sewing Cafe  once again I discovered how much enjoyment new home sewing can bring to the table.   World wide people want to have clothes that make them feel good and fit them, not some number,  to suit the masses.  Which is good for everyone, this will hopefully inspire more of us to make our own clothes, rather than just nip out and buy something.
Bold, with stripes, unique, was a dress one lady had finished.  French seams, a dress that fits the owner, the power,  knowing it was hand made and is one of a kind.  Another customer walked in, do you do sewing lessons?  The question was asked, while I waited to pay for my purchase.

Anna, who work in the shop had made this quilt.  Eldon,  by Edytha Sirdar.

Each block was different.  Attention to detail, the background tie all the colours together, making them the stars.

The quilting was done by  long arm quilter,  Cheryl Westlake.    Love the backing, such an intense colour.
All those piece was once just, bits of fabric, together, they create a strong bond and a beautiful quilt,  a heirloom, to keep a loved one, warm and surrounded with comfort. 


  1. That is a lovely quilt. I am sure it was a delight to see.

  2. Hi Maggie, glad you were able to see this stunning quilt in person. So many scrumptious colours what a joy it must have been to make. Hugs Glenda
