Quilt Love: Winter Picnic

Many of my quilts are given to friends and family and are for special occasions, but some, they are my keepers. Perhaps i've made them with myself or my family in mind, or maybe i simply fell in love with them and their pretty fabrics while i was making them. They are special to me and they are used in our home and loved for many purposes.

Sometimes we just snuggle under them while watching movies or they keep our guests warm when they come to stay. Others are used on our camping trips, in the van as we hit the road or on picnics. The Hurricane snuggles under one on his bed but he also reckons they make the best cubbies. My husband and i usually snuggle under my favourite.

I've decided to share with you on the blog how my family love our quilts and how quilts are part of our day to day lives. It's my hope you'll enjoy seeing these photos as much as we enjoy creating the quilt love memories.

It's a work in progress and i'll keep adding to it as i collect our memories, but first of all i can share some memories from our recent camping trip to South Durras, a gorgeous part of the NSW South Coast.

We often use our Summer Picnic Quilt when we're out camping or on day trips to the National Parks and Reserves near us. I still love the colours and the bamboo batting and basic straight-line machine quilting are holding up well to the regular washing and outdoor use. I'm so glad we kept it!



  1. Its bright colors and coastline photo shoot is lovely. I can tell it is a regular part of family outings. :)

  2. It's lovely to see quilts well used and loved. Mine get dragged everywhere and laid on and under, especially by Stan my black lab

  3. What a lovely spot! Too many of mine live in the cupboard. They need to get out more like this beauty.


Wahoo.....I'm always stoked to receive comments so thanks so much for taking the time.

Wishing you many happy quilting hours!
