About Me

My photo
IMAGINATION IS THE EYE OF THE SOUL Joseph Joubert. I am a mother of four...I still remember the smile that refused to go away for weeks after our daughters birth. To have a little girl appear after three sons seemed such a miracle. I have always enjoyed My Doll World, sharing it with Lara when she was little. Today I design knitted outfits for miniature dolls and enjoy every minute of it. The fact that the outfits are removable is what makes it so special for me. Using ever finer threads has opened so many MINIATURE DESIGN opportunities.

A couple of years ago I did a beginners course in quilting...I could not make the quilt that the teacher had made, 
I simply could not like it.

I learned all the methods of piecing which was fun.

I still have not put the edge on the quilt because there is a special method of doing it, Ricky Tims was the guy that uses that method.

One uses a sewing machine that involves piping, I think it is much neater than doing it by hand. I know it is not the traditional method, but it is now 2011

So I would like to use this new method.

Rein was so sick at the time that I was easily distracted. 
So this is one UFO that needs to be completed soon.


I just thought about it today I can print this quilt onto a very fine Batiste then hand quilt the design onto the a piece of flannel. As you can see that in real life I love the Autumn shades of the world. 
I took the pictures of the houses from some 
"Tourist Tiles" I had in my kitchen.

I then photocopied them and then played for a week.

I stood on the ladder today to take the photograph, as it is far to windy today to take it outside. 
You can see the photograph is a little squiffy.


My teacher thought I had done quilting before, and others asked if I bought a kit.

Maybe I should sell a kit for this quilt...
Any takers for a beginners quilt.
