Just exactly where have I sprung from...why haven't you seen me before? Yes, I realise that I seem new to you but in actual fact I have been on this earth for at least 50 years and have been involved in Fabrics for about 30 of them. It's just that I haven't tried blogging about it before.
I grew up in Africa, in Zimbabwe in fact, and am now traveling around the world on a yacht. While I'm doing this I decided to see if I could create something of interest for quilters worldwide. I used to dye fabric by the meter and sell it at quilt exhibitions local to South Africa and international too. I studied for three years at college finishing 3rd in my class and majoring in Textile Design. I've worked for many years in different factories getting experience.Thing is, the yacht is too small to hold yards and yards of fabric and frankly my partner would have a fit....so :-) I came up with the idea of Quilt Blocks. The one in my profile pic is a center piece for a quilt that is to be hung in La Paz, Mexico.
My shop is on Etsy there is an advert on the right hand side of the blog or you can click HERE.
To show you what I'm up to here are some photo's.
Oh yes.....the writing across the picture is just to protect the photo.
This is an Immature Spider Conch Shell.
Long Yellow Jelly.
I want to be able to get feedback from other quilters, who may have a request for something that they might like to see me produce. I am quite willing to add items to the pool.
So drop me a line and let me know what you think.
It was brought to my attention that I do not have any info on what can be done with these blocks that I dye and paint...I wanted to decorate the saloon on our yacht and so I made these panels and a scatter Cushion...

It teaches you how to do Crazy Quilt Patchwork. I found it on the internet... happy sewing.
I hope that this gives some of you some inspiration... :-)
