A few of my favourite things…


It’s time for this year’s Whims and Fancies Trunk Show

Online Quilt Trunk Show | Whims And Fancies

…and I decided I would share a few of my favourite things that I’ve made – a selection of my small quilts/wall hangings. I am always a bit daunted by the term ‘Art Quilt’ and, as my little quilts tend to be very much inspired by stories, I think of them more as fabric illustrations. The quilt above is called ‘Sasanka: Marked with the Hare’ and in its original post you can find out why the Hare in the Moon is an important figure in the ancient stories of India, China, Africa and the Celts.


This next one is “An Old Man and the Sea’. I first introduced him in the post ‘I Saw a Fish!’ His main claim to fame is that he was featured in Home Maker Magazine! His story, such as it is, can be found in the post of the quilt below, ‘Magical Midwinter Quilt: The Words Edition’.


This next quilt, ‘Corn Goddess’ still lives in my kitchen by the clock and was inspired by the story of Demeter and Persephone.


And, finally, this recent quilt is a sort of illustration of  Do Re Mi from The Sound of Music, which I made in response to a challenge theme of Colour + Music. A post, which, hopefully, makes more sense of the various items in the picture can be found here.


I hope you will join Soma’s Trunk Show and visit the other entries. You can also link up knitting and there are lots of fabulous prizes :)
