Taking a Sabbatical

For fifteen years I have been running my long arm quilting business Addicted To Quilts - meeting and working with many wonderful quilters.

After a great deal of thought I will be taking a sabbatical.  This is exciting and a little bit scary.  I plan to work on my own quilts and to spend time with my family - maybe even do more blog posts......... 

Of course I will be completing all exiting bookings which will take me into next year.  If you have a booking, please contact me in the usual way.

I plan to start up my business again in 2020.  I really love my work and can't imagine not coming back to it.  At the same time, I am looking forward to taking a break and having time for other things as well.

If you would like to be included on an email list for me to notify you when I open bookings again, please visit my web site - Addicted To Quilts for a link to my email address.

Thank you to my customers who I have been lucky to meet and quilt for, your support is greatly appreciated.

Oh, and here is the obligatory picture of a quilt :)

Checkered Stars

This is a quilt I completed a few years back.  The top was completed in 2011.  I started quilting it in 2012, got around 80% of it done, and then had to take it off the machine to work on customer’s quilts.  It took another two years before it got loaded again so get the last bit done.

I quilted it heavily with a combination of straight and curved lines and of course feathers. 

I entered it into Showcase - which is the main show for my state of Victoria in 2015, and was thrilled that it won first in its category.
