Look what my friend Di made!

She's an experienced garment sewer, but my friend (blogless) Di has only recently caught the quilting bug (I confess I infected her).

This is her very first quilt - isn't it fun and fabulous?

She adapted a pattern from a past issue of "Australian Patchwork & Quilting", called "Sophie's Bears", using brights instead of the pastels in the original quilt, and although we had one stitching day together (as I worked on my "Chocolat" quilt) she did it all herself.

I just love the fabrics she's already bought for her next one, hydrangeas in gorgeous blues and soft lime greens. Watch this space!

  1. What a lovely bright fun quilt! I'll only believe it's her first because you say so. :)

    So, the quilting conversion has happened. How long before the blogging conversion? lol

  2. Obviously, Blogless Di has her act together. She has a personal infector, errr instructor; a wonderful color sense; and her priorities are in order...she's actually MAKING quilts, instead of blogging about quilts as the rest of us do! You go BD!

  3. No, she can't get a blog!!! Blogless Di is a fabulous name... it really makes a statement!

    (Excellent quilt, by the way.)

  4. Wow ... that's amazing for a first quilt. Has your friend got a blog yet?! x


I love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment.
