Hello everyone,
This was a pattern in Tilda book I bought four years ago and never got round to making..but this year they had to be done! I have also done the penguin family and snowman out of the same book...must stop now as quilt is needing quilted before christmas. Next year it is the snowman with pyjamas. This is a lovely book and not too expensive.

This is the next one done, been waiting to get quilted for a while, I used variegated thread and a basic meander. I used leftover blocks to make two cushions to complete the bed.
Working on another quilt, dresden plate with leftovers and it is a challange...I have been in the waste bin three times looking for bits to complete..I will post it when it is done.

Another design using my quilting frame and first go at roses and leaves...I am happy with it...used Aurifil variegated thread and this worked a treat in the machine and the quilting...will do this design again.

Hello Bettina, I don't have a shop or website but if you look at my albums you can see some of my work or email me at and we can discuss the quilting service I provide...for example a simple meandering or loops pattern works out at £1 a square foot which means a double quilt is about £49....saves all that pinning and no pleats or tucks in either the top or bottom of your quilt. regards,Marlene

Hello again,
Well I have finished quilting and sewing on binding and here is Highland Toffee.

I use heat 'n' bond light for my appliques, I find it better than bondaweb, it is a bit firmer but these quilts were made a wall hangings so that is ok with me. I find I can stick it down and leave it for months if I have to and it is still stuck down when I come back to it. I don't do this often now that I have retired...I try to do one project at a time...doing two at the moment!!!
The pattern is from a book Sunbonnet Sue all through the year. You get two options for each month, I used some of them and mixed some and added a little. The book also gives you a lovely border but I did not do it as wall hanging would then be too big.
Book by Sue Linker..Martingale... That Pachwork Place...I got it at one of the shows a few years ago...afraid that is all the help I can give about it ....
The Nursery Quilt was a block of the month a few years ago, don't know if it is available now...will be somewhere.

Hi Jo, Have you tried no wadding and a nice thick fleece backing either.

Thanks Susan,it was my knees crawling around the floor on the big quilts that decided it...I had to do it...I only went for a look at the Knitting and Stitching show and I heard myself saying .....who do I make the cheque out to!
The other good thing is no pinning and it is so quick, I will be doing one on Wednesday and will let you all have a look after binding is sewn on.

Quilting your quilts through a domestic sewing machine can be a bit tricky...
I know as I have been doing it for years...two years ago I bought an Inspira Quilting Frame and Mega Quilter....and now I not only do my own quilts I do customers quilts too...can you believe I find it very...relaxing!

Hi Marlene,
Welcome to the Forum
I've looked your album too and your quilts are amazing and lovely.  I love the sunbonnet sue quilt.

Hello Irene, glad you too liked my quilts and I had great fun making this one, every month got better and better as my confidence grew, I just thought what that month meant to me and altered the pattern to suit me and my stash.

Hello Janet, glad you liked the kimono, I made it the first year after I left college all by myself and I was really pleased with it, it now hangs on the landing.
I retired from my office job at 50 and then went to college to do city and guilds patchwork and design just for fun and got hooked, after I left I had a year out doing my own thing and then started to teach classes, only one day a week, as I am supposed to be retired! Now I have just turned 60 and have stopped the classes ( they are now running as a group) I am again doing my own thing....I will post my quilting projects as I do them, working on two at the moment, one machine applique and the other a double hexagon by hand, not a lover of hand work but I wanted to give it a go, it will take some time but it is nice to do on an evening.

Hi everyone,

This is my very first time and I hope I don't make a mess of it so here goes.

I have been a patchworker for about 10 years now, ever since I got my City and Guilds at Middlesbrough College in 2000/01.
I usued to teach a class until I retired Summer 2009. Now it is my time, have a look at my album under The Patchwork Quilt Maker and see what I have been up to...I will add more as I do them.
Bye for now

Hi everyone,

This is my very first time and I hope I don't make a mess of it so here goes.

I run a patchwork and quilting group in Linthorpe Village, Middlesbrough. We meet every Friday 10.-12 and 1.-3pm  You can stay all day if you want just bring a packed lunch. Bus trips and social days are also included and we run all year round, join any time, beginners very welcome and we also have room to put as many tables up to accomodate the largest of quilts. We make small items too especially BAGS. Looking forward to many new members.

Many thanks
