Patchwork and Quilting

I enjoy colour and pattern which is why I started machine piecing a couple of years ago. Iam gradually trying different patterns - but there is a limit as to how many quilts I can find a use for!

Click on any image for details of that quilt in a new window/tab. Sizes are given in inches because many quilting books and most quilting accessories, especially the perspex rulers, are produced for the American market and marked in inches, and I do try to sew quarter inch seams in my piecing.
