Hi, my name is Michelle Yeo of Michelle Yeo Quilt Designs. I am a quilt designer and teacher from Melbourne, Australia.
My quilts are inspired by quilts of the past and I am passionate about their history, designs and the fabrics used in these creations.
I hope my blog will show you some of my work in progress, from a pile of fabric to a finished quilt and I invite your comments and feedback along the way.
Please visit me at www.michelleyeoquiltdesigns.com to see my designs.

Vanity Fair Borders
I mentioned in my last posting that I had modified my design for the Vanity Fair quilt due to my tennis elbow and the time restraints for publication of the magazine. I had completed 3 of the applique borders which were in my original design, but, I was unable to complete the whole quilt which was a more accurate reproduction of the antique quilt. I thought I would share with you some images from these borders. Keep in mind that the corner appliques on the border do not appear as they are to be worked once the borders are attached to the quilt centre ---but--- there isn't a centre now as I used it in the finished quilt. I will have to remake it...slightly tweaked I think. Enjoy!
