My website is about my own designs - quilts and fabrics, so please take a look.

My name is Deirdre Bond-Abel.  I have been a quilter for over forty years, it is my great love and obsession.  I live on sixty beautiful acres in the Southern Midlands of Tasmania, Australia.  My home is my sanctuary and my inspiration.

From 2005 -2015 I had a bricks and mortar Quilt Shop in Hobart, Tasmania.  In 2015 my business moved to our home offering online sales.

For much of those forty years I designed my own quilts and have been publishing my patterns under my Hat Creek Quilts name.  I have also authored a few quilt books, the last one being called "A Perfect Ending to a New Beginning" which was published by Quiltmania.  You may have seen my quilts featured as projects in Quilt Magazines as well.

I think I must be one of the luckiest people in the world because for the last three years I have been working with the fabulous team at Marcus Fabrics - reclaiming prints from my antique quilts and turning them into beautiful fabrics that we can all use.

However life sometimes needs a new direction and I have recently given up fabric design to concentrate on family things and quilt making.

For many years I travelled throughout Australia and Internationally teaching my brand of applique and also vending at quilt shows.  The Pandemic changed the world greatly for us all and certainly slowed me down.  I now just stay home and focus on my quilt designs.

 

Happy Trails,

Deirdre
