Free Advice on Quilt-making       

If you are struggling with a problem in your quilt-making, I'll try to give you some useful advice.

I'm not a traditional quilter, so my suggestions may be unconventional, but hopefully they will be helpful too.

And to be honest, I'm not good at measuring or math, so I can't help you with calculating yardage.

  You can email me for free advice at 


"But when things 
go wrong, have a 
nice cup of tea."

Description of The Haunted House Quilt:
A quilted and appliquéd Victorian house, quite spooky looking, with four turrets and a whale-weathervane.

A red-haired woman stands in the open arched doorway. Her red hair is created of French knots..

The stormy night sky is made of blue and black hand-dyed fabric, with bare tree branches and bats flying, silhouetted against moon.

There is a dark garden and graveyard in foreground with a fence and falling-apart gate. A cat is sitting by gate.

This quilt is beautifully detailed, made with hand-dyed and hand-painted fabrics. It is lavishly stitched and quilted, both by hand and machine.

This is an original design, one-of-a-kind, and very recognizable. It was a custom ordered quilt.

Size: This is a double-bed sized,  quilt, 75"x95". 
The central pictorial panel shown here is approximately 54"x75" and it is surrounded by a ten-inch outer 
border of dark grey fabric
