Shop

Browse through the General Quilts and Fidget Quilts sections.  Below those, you’ll find Beaded Jewellery from Nepal and, finally, under Odds and Ends, you’ll find a variety of other items, including hand-felted poppy brooches and cute $2 pot holders, etc.  (It’s worth keeping an eye on this last section, which will change from time to time.)

Eventually, I was very happy with the result on this lovely quilt. The Double Tulip design is a very old one, proving that quality never dates! 130cm X 160cm…
