Where Quilter's Create

April warms the hearts of 16 ex-soldiers
from ‘Curphey Home’ in Mandeville, Jamaica
last Christmas (2008). She made 16 ‘Bandana Quilts’
Finding space to do her machine quilting was quite simple!

Here is April, having removed a 'leaf' from her dinning table,
she placed her chair in the middle, and quilted away with joy in her heart.
Thank you April for sharing your tip and photo.

Lets share our tips!

Happy Quilting,

Easter Weekend has passed. In Jamaica, Good Friday is the day
we indulge in our traditional 'Easter Bun and Cheese' all day! My
favourite Bun this year was 'Miss Birdie' was delicious.

In the meantime, my Moda ‘Turnovers’ arrived.

What are Turnovers?

'Turnovers' are 6" squares cut diagonally giving you
40 different 6" triangles from a Moda Fabric Designers
Collection. I used Patisserie Turnovers.

I was so excited and enjoyed working with the pre-cut
triangles. I have now finished my quilt top and about to
put it all together.

Here is my quilt top.

This year my goal is to applique an amazing quilt or
at least begin the journey. I have not yet started, however,
my Applique quilt is on my vision board!

My friend Carlene, who teaches 'Applique' is in the
process of making her grandson a quilt. I have asked her
to share with us her blocks as she makes Jaimie's Quilt.

Here is her first block.

Until next time - Happy Quilting!
Lots of Blessings,

Wishing you all the Blessings of Easter

"God so loved the world that He gave

His one and only Son, that whoever

believes in Him shall not perish, but

have eternal life"

As we quilt through our days lets take

time to reflect on the true meaning of

life and rejoice in the moment.

Happy Easter,
