My Story

Welcome to She Quilts Alot!

My name is Peta Peace and I’m a quilter who’s been making and creating for 14 years.   That seems like such a long time and when I look back it sure is a lot of quilts!

When I’m not sewing and quilting I am a wife to my super spunky best friend Richard (he seriously is!) and a Mum to our two beautiful girls.    Somewhere in all of that I also run my own non quilt related business.

We are lucky enough to call Brisbane, Australia home.   I love the small town feel of this city and the fantastic weather we have…… except in January & February when the really high humidity hits and my hair goes crazy!

I hope you enjoy this little blog.  If you have any questions, or just want to say hi!, I’d love to hear from you.

    1. Yay Angela, Brisbane is just such a great place to live isn’t it! Thanks so much for your kindness and for good wishes 🙂

  3. Hello Peta,
    Congratulations on your new journey of blogging. Looking forward to “keeping my eye on you” and sharing your pages of dialogue. Your family quilt is gorgeous, I’m yet to sew my alphabet together, sigh – one day. Once again, best wishes.

    1. Thanks Deb, it really is such an enjoyable project sewing the letters. Thanks for ‘keeping an eye on me’ 🙂

  4. I am another IG’er who,has followed you for awhile…it is a bit creepy sounding…..and am thrilled you’ve dived into blogging. I love checking out people’s blogs, although I don’t blog myself. Your family quilt is wonderful as is the other sewing of yours that I’ve seen. I look forward to ‘hanging out’ with you here.

    1. Thanks Ann, its exciting just thinking about the possibilities that a blog provides. Can’t wait to share more and so glad you’ll be hanging out with me here too 🙂

    1. Oh thanks Maggie, so great to meet you to o and so grateful you’ve come to check the blog out 🙂

  5. Well, hello there! Welcome to the world of blogging, looks like you’ve picked up the hang of it very quickly. I’m looking forward to more Peta goodness, but in the long form now! Have fun x x

  6. Thank you for posting a tutorial for the yellow and white pillow that I requested. I also did not get the pattern for your Layer Cake Coin quilt in bright sun fabric. I joined after the pattern was sent in an email. Would it be possible for you to send the Layer Cake Coin quilt to me?

    1. Hi Judy, thanks for your sweet comment. I’ll send the PDF to you now, it will have come through automatically but ended up in the promotions folder or worse…the spam folder. It’s worth checking in both of those places. Thanks again. X

    2. Hi Peta, i have just started your Bloom quilt pattern now that Sugar Pie fabric is out in the States. Thank you for making a pattern with the pressing directions. As a newer quilter (13 months) I really appreciate them, they help the blocks go together so easily. Thanks again!

  7. Hi,
    Could you please tell me the fabric collection you use to make “Playing Around Again”? I love the colors and would like to try and find it. Also, love your “Piece if Cake Book” beautiful quilts.
