Raggy baby quilt

This is a baby quilt I did last year but forgot to photograph.  It is just a cute little flannel raggy quilt but the memorable thing about it for me is that it was really my first commissioned baby quilt.  (I had made a wedding quilt made to the recipient's design specs earlier in the year but that was a gift from me).  So anyway, thanks Deb for believing in my quilting enough to purchase this quilt for your friend's baby.  I believe it has had much use and love, just as a quilt should. :)

Memory game

Thanks Amanda for pointing me towards this memory game.  Looks absolutely gorgeous!  Can't wait until my little man is old enough to appreciate something like this although maybe I had better make a start on one soon considering how long projects are currently taking me...:)

A package in the post...

I love receiving packages in the mail, especially ones containing...fabric. :)
Today I got a box from -  not a site I have used before but they proved to be very efficient, reasonably priced and had a great selection of unusual fabrics.  Some of my favourites in the box were some Kaffe Fassett materials and a "Sherbet Pips" jelly roll.  No immediate plans for using them but plenty of ideas...

Hello world

Hi, I'm Kate but hope to become known through my quilting as Jemima.  It was my nickname as a little girl and seems somehow apt that I use it now as I embark on my quilting journey.  Actually my journey started a couple of years ago and traces of it can be found here but I feel the time has come to give my sewing its own space.  After all, it has its own room now!
This all sounds very grand and it isn't really but I hope it will be a nice space to explore quilting, share things and show and tell...
