I loved Violet's Lion quilt the moment I saw it at market show many years ago, but never sadly got around to making it! While watching Today's show it reminded me how slack I have been & how regretful I have become with not learning more about Violet's wonderful wealth of knowledge and skill! Actually, I think Violet's show was is pretty fantastic and I need to learn more about her and her work whilst still in lock down at home.

I made the horse quilt back in January using low volume pinks and the browns for the horse. It is stunning! It’s a gift for my horse obsessed young great niece. Still at the long-armer. Can’t wait to see it all quilted.
Love the Susters pattern. I have stayed at The 5 Pines Lodge on one of my visits to Sisters. Beautiful!
Violet’s patterns are wonderful. Very exacting and detailed. She does a great job.
