Hi everyone,
My name is Petra James. I live in Orange, NSW, Australia. I am married to a wonderful man who encourages me in all I do, especially my quilting. We have five children of which two are married and two have partners. We have eight wonderful grandchildren.

My love for quilting started not long after I was married when my sister took me to a quilting and craft show. I was stunned at all of the beautiful quilts that were available to purchase or make. I found a small quilt called “friendship farm” that used appliqué within small blocks. I just had to purchase the pattern and started it the very next day. It took me quite a few months to complete the project, but started a long life joy. This year, I decided that I wanted to learn to machine piece quilting. I have enjoyed every minute of this and have also combined both machine and appliqué in my quilting.

But my new passion is crocheting children’s novelty hats. This joy came when our new grandchildren were born and children and adults all over Australia have enjoyed them as well.

I hope you enjoy my adventures with me.

Love Petra.
