'Lorry's Flower Garden" Quilt...

It has finally made it - into "Country Threads' magazine, Vol 12 No 1. I sent this quilt off about 6 months ago to be in the magazine and it is finally in print!!

This quilt was created in remembrance of the garden I used to play in as a my Grandma's house...a garden full of lavender and stunning, fragrant roses....

Simple nine patch piecing and fairly easy applique work, made this quilt a joy to make.

I hope you all like it...

Until next time

"The Comfort Quilt"

I needed to make a quilt for our bedroom that would go with the blue, the linen and the provincial style that I was planning to create in our bedroom. I was looking through the latest issue of "Vignette" by Leanne Beasley, and I came across this quilt - "The Comfort Quilt". As soon as I saw it, I just knew this was the one I had to make.

So the following Saturday I was down at "Gail's Patchwork", buying my fabrics. This is the stack that I purchased...

Next came all the cutting, which I find I really enjoy doing, there is something very relaxing about it, laying all the strips into columns, they look kind of cool!

Now I've just got to work out in which order I will stitch them together...

Until next time,
Stay Safe
