About GourmetQuilter

My name is SusanClaire Mayfield and I live in a delightful old home in the country in New Zealand. I have been quilting for many years and have been designing quilting patterns for a long time now! I love to design and write patterns for quilts and bags and other quilt related items and now have quite a large range.

  1. Oh my gosh – I love this photo. I foolishly quilt inside. 🙂 When I saw your photo, I thought of the old song by the Drifters: When this old world starts getting me down, And people are just too much for me to face, I climb way up to the top of the stairs, And all my cares just drift right into space, On the roof, it’s peaceful as can be, And there the world below can’t bother me…

    The back patio. Living in Texas, however, means that I can’t do this very often because of the heat and enormous mosquitos!

  7. You have a nice place to quilt. I like it. 🙂

    The best quiltingplace for me and my sewing machine is indoors in my living room. My terrace is the best place for lazing.

    I bet that has never been seen before, a quilter busily sewing in the sunshine on the roof of her narrow boat!! Lovely photo and what fun 🙂

    What a nice picture. I don’t think I could sew very much, because I would be looking at the scenery. Please keep us posted on your activities.

    Love the picture! Looks like you’re enjoying yourself up there! I took the liberty of linking to this post on a French quilters forum. I hope you don’t mind. If you do, let me know and I’ll remove the link.

    I love it, but I would be terrified that I would knock the whole kit-n-kaboodle in the canal!
