This is where it all started for me but times change and now all of my blogging takes place over at my
Quilt Routes blog and I hope you will join me over there.

I made it.

Well, I did make it to the Festival of Quilts. That is my quilt there looking suprisingly small. I thought it was huge when it was here with me. I got to the show for a few hours on Sunday and have to confess to being in a bit of a daze after last weeks events. Browsing through the blogs I now see how much I missed, but never mind.

Well here it is in all it's glory.
I got home yesterday to find some really lovely emails and comments and I have been so touched by what has been said. You know who you are, and I thank you so much.


  1. It must have been a wonderful show and wonderful to see your piece hanging. I really do love this piece.


  2. Just made my husband look at your quilt. Some things are so good you have to share!

  3. Oh my gosh Deborah - that's STUNNING!

    Congrats on the lovely showing. :)

  4. How good you made it to the show - even for just a few hours. It would have been such a pity if you would not have seen your quilt in the exhibition!
    And I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your quilt. When you showed glimpses of it, I already thought - hm, that looks really pretty and interesting. Now I know I underestimated ... its glorious! I love how the colours work together, and your stitching is just amazing. For sure this would have been a quilt that had stopped me in my tracks, so I would have been able to take a closer look at it.
    So - keep up that great work!

  5. Your work is amazing. I love everything in this piece, the colours, the stitching, the design.... Beautiful!

  6. I saw your quilt at the exhibition - it was gorgeous. Your pebble quilting was beautiful as well, it really made the quilt.

  7. I so love this quilt! All the work and creativity, I am so pleased to see the whole thing.

  8. Your quilt is amazing, I saw it in person at FofQ! Just found your blog through Brit Quilt and am now a follower. Looking forward to seeing more of those fab black and White blocks

  9. It's beautiful Deborah - well done.

  10. Hoe much I would love to be there, to admire it in real time....Anyway, it doesn't seem to me a small quilt, it has quite a correct proportion for those walls and for an exhibition...
    I loved it from the first seen peble, and I know it would be great .
    Congratulation for all !

  11. Your quilt looks spectacular! congratulations! Your quilting is stunning. I wish I had a handle on my machine like you!

  12. Hello Deborah, I just found your blog and your work - so inspiring and beautifully made! I love your "Cherish" and wonder if I may include a link to it on my little blog? The poem is lovely and your quilt illustrates is so perfectly. My condolences on the loss of your friend.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
