A lovely note....and don't forget Lilys quilts

The other day I had a visit from a customer to collect her first quilt....very exciting!  But even more exciting when I received this wonderful note and pictures of her quilt in situ a few days later!  It is lovely to see the quilts I have played a small part in being loved and used as they should be.  Thanks so much Amy...

Hi Karen.

I just wanted to say thank you for all your help with my first ever
patchwork quilt. I really appreciated your advice when it came to
choosing a long-arm quilting design, the colour of the quilting
thread, the wadding and the backing. It was so kind of you to take the
time to talk through everything over a cup of tea.

I am really pleased with the finished result – you obviously took a
lot of care with the complex quilting pattern – and your tips on
binding came in very handy. I was dreading binding the quilt, but it
was easy and took less than a day.

I thought you might like to see a couple of pictures of the finished
quilt in situ. It proves that even beginners can make something
beautiful. Even Trevor, the neighbour’s cat, approves. I’ve decided to
call it “Postcards from Gardener’s Cottage” since I think the blocks
look like old fashioned postcards scattered all over the bed.

I’m already wondering what I can make next, so no doubt I'll be
browsing your online shop soon. Maybe I’ll work up the courage to try
triangles or hexagons.

Best wishes,


And don't forget....the new webshop.  Pop over to Lilysqults for a chance to win some Bella fat quarters.  Have a lovely day....from the woollies and me!


  1. Isn't it great when someone takes the time to say thanks - the quilt looks really great

  2. You deserve the compliments. Your work is beautiful - and BTW how can you start a web shop when I am on a strict fabric diet? Jette
