The Pink Possum has dragged herself away from the vege patch long enough to work on some customer and raffle quilts. I have enjoyed the summer and made the most of the fine days, but am looking forward to the winter influx of beautiful quilts, they warm me up just looking at them!

Every year we have a West Coast Quilting Weekend and this July the Greymouth clubs are hosting it. This is a quilt we completed to raffle in April. The sashing fabric is snow dyed calico I dyed during the great snow storm of 2011.

 This is my friend Mary's quilt. She embroidered the butterflies on her Bernina.

A pretty rose quilt I quilted freehand.

Officially my first vintage quilt, 1950's, send from USA. Mustard was a popular colour then, and teamed with orange and pink....why not?!

Look out for my advert in the NZ Quilter Magazine coming out in April. If you would like your quilt quilted and you live far away, you can post it to me, I will email/phone with options and prices and courier your quilt back free of charge when finished. It will also be trimmed ready for you to bind.

Happy quilting :)
