Barbara's Quilts

Barbara and I took a basic quilting course together (I was the only male — duh!) at Wineberry Fabrics & Yarns. Don't exactly remember what year.

Needless to say, I have never actually put a quilt together. Barbara has done many — they are showcased here. Those that she has completed, and those she may currently be working on. Clicking on any of thumbnail images will open a new page with a screen sized photo, and, a few details.

Unless otherwise noted, all of these quilts have been professionally quilted by Catherine, of The Quilted Garden. At one time here in Surrey. She is now over on the Island.


A number of Barbara's quilts have left home, and are being enjoyed by two & four-legged family, as well as a friend or two.
