Antique Quilts

Free Pattern Give Away:
My sister "Marg" and I arrived in Hobart on the Friday morning before the Autumn Gathering.
We stopped off at The Quilted Crow patchwork shop, which proved to be an expensive exercise as we both ended up purchasing an Antique Quilt each....ahhhhhhh !!!!!!!!!!!!
We were helping the girls move a few things around the shop when we fell in love with them....they feel sooooo soft....the hand piecing and hand quilting on them is amazing.
I will post a picture of my quilt for you to see when I get if off
Have any of you ladies got 1 or maybe 2 antique quilts ?
I would love to hear from you.
Leave a comment (and mention my giveaway on your blog to get an extra entry) to be in the draw for a free pattern .
Good Luck...
Cheers Kerry

Autumn Gathering

Here we are at the Autumn gathering.
From the left is Lynette Anderson, from Queensland
Leonie & Deirdre from
The Quilted Crow and yours truly .....
What a great day had by all.
I meet up again with a few familiar faces and had the pleasure to meet a lot more like minded craft women.

This is the Hall all decked out for the 70 lovely ladies booked in for a wondering day of chatting, sewing, sharing and feasting on the delicious food the girls organised for the day.
The bags on the tables were full of goodies and a few surprises.

Autumn Gathering

This is the beautiful "Curries" B&B in Richmond, where the girls from
The Quilted Crow put us up for the weekend.

All that green grass was a lovely sight....they even had the spinkler going.

Snowball Season

This is one of my quilts from last season....I went mad on Snowmen and civil war fabrics in blues and browns.
It is simple stitchery and pinwheel patchwork piecing.
I colour washed the snowmen in fabric paint.

Hi everyone.
I am so excited. I just got a phone call from my printer this afternoon, my "New" Block Of The Month patterns are nearly complete.
"Life's Treasures & Pleasures"
I should have it together to launch in Hobart at our weekend workshop, on the 19th April.
Here is a sneak preview of one of the blocks.

Witchy Poo & Her Old Crow

Witchy Poo, I designed for a special Halloween weekend held at "The Quilted Crow" in Hobart. I have painted the crow and witch then sanded back to give an aged worn out look.

A Big Thank You

I would just like to thank a good friend of mine "Bernadette". She has spent the afternoon teaching me how to add to my's wasn't an easy task....BUT I think she has done it ...I have just added a few of my quilts...I hope you enjoy my new enters.
Until tomorrow...good night. Kerry x

Spring Time

This is another of my simple patchwork and embroidered spring flower quilt. There are 24 stitched blocks.......I just didn't know when to stop.

This is a scrappy quilt using a big mixture of my scrap civil war fabrics. I have used a combination of floral stitchery and simple patchwork.


This gorgeous little girl is made from tea dyed osnasberg.
