In March 2016 the Bourne Quilters and a few friends made this quilt for International Quilting Day.  These were made using quilt as you go, sew and flip blocks

And another quilt was made soon after.  

These have been received by the Youth Cancer Trust, a local charity, that has a holiday home for young cancer sufferers and their carers/siblings

A scrappy trip around the world quilt. Completed May 2014. More about that here

A Linus Quilt made in April 2014.

Quilts that I made for Region 4 (Cornwall, Devon and Dorset) of the Quilters' Guild

We Are Sailing, 2012.  To celebrate the Olympic sailing events in Weymouth
Coast, 2013.  
This a quilt I made for the bed settee that's in my sewing room. finished October 2012
From a kit by Bramble Patch, Northampton, the fabric is called "Pure II"

This quilt was made for my sister for her 50th birthday in September 2012.  This is jelly roll quilt using a Moda roll called Butterscotch and Roses and the pattern is Twisted Braid from the book More Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and Charm Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott

I have since made her a cushion to go with this using cut off triangles from the blocks in the quilt to make this Union Jack for December 2012

Here's a quilt that I've made the end of 2010 at a workshop in York, called Oriental Fans.
I enjoyed making this so much that I made another for a swap run by BQL in January/February 2011
Another quilt for a swap in the summer was this one below, which was to be made of a different shape other than 4 sided or to make it an irregular 4 sided shape. 

This was based on quilt made at a workshop that I did several years ago with Janice Gunner and the colours on the quilt below were inspired by sandy cliffs at Branksome Chine.

Last year on one of our several trips between Yorkshire and Dorset our stopping off point at the Bramble Patch in Weedon, Northamptonshire (exactly halfway) I saw this kit called Le Poulet in black and beige to make 4 placemats.  Not only did I make these but also some coasters with the remaining fabric

I went on to make a little zip bag
 and even a postcard from the same fabric.  I did make that go a long way from just making 4 placemats!
