    Hi that’s lovely, where did you get the white elephants from? A&E they appliqué or have you made them yourself? You make some lovy things. !

    Regards Gemma xx

      Hi Gemma,
      I draw and make all my appliqués myself to match my quilts. Thanks for your lovely feedback xx

        Blimey your very talented! 😉 I am sorry for my previous spelling mistakes! Predictive text on my iPhone, certainly can’t spell!
        This may sound like a silly question but how do you manage to get your squares so accurate? I am going to have a go at making my little boy a quilt and wondered if there was a particular tool that you used to get such accuracy and straight lines?
        If my quilt turns out half as good as yours I will be very pleased! I love to follow what you have on your machine, how ever do you find the time! 🙂

        Thank you Gemma x

          hi Gemma, Thanks. Have you ever done any quilting..the way they all cut out fabric is with a ruler and rotor cutter on a cutting matt. You might try visiting a quilting shop or see if they have classes there to learn some basics or check out some quilting mags or blogs.
          As for where I find the time..i always feel like I’m chasing my tail and I have so many ideas in ever have time to do everything..lol. I thought it is a good way for people to see what I’m working on in case its what they are after and others just like to be inspired. nicx
