Today’s block Let It Snow is very appropriate here in Ottawa today, as Winter has arrived. I’m happy to report the puppy wasn’t too upset with all that white stuff, just a little confused, but he still did his business outside.

What is your quilting style?
I like to make bright, happy quilts, usually traditionally pieced or appliqued with a twist.
How did you get started quilting and/or designing?
My mother taught me to sew when I was very small. I started teaching not long after my first child was born 14 years ago, and opened a shop, Material Obsession, 9 years ago. After I left the shop I wrote my third book, Quilting, From Little Things and started designing fabrics (my latest range is called St Ives) for Lecien, Japan.
Do you have a favourite quilt?
My favourite quilt at the moment is called A Wing and A Prayer, the pattern for it is in my book Quilting, From Little Things. I loved making it – it’s hand appliqued and hand quilted which are my favourite things to do. The quilt won a major prize at the Sydney quilt show this year which was very exciting for me.
Quick and fun questions:
- Favourite colour: green
- What part of the quilting process do you like the most? hand quilting
