More variations on a theme

Quilt 3

IMG_0977 A mere nod in the direction of The English Quilt here.


Appliqueed gum leaves and blossoms have replaced the hexagons, and cross-stitched blocks of colourful waratahs, boronias, wattle and Christmas bells make this quilt as Aussie as can be. Gorgeous!

IMG_0985 Delicate English roses everywhere you look on this one. For most of us this was a stashbusting exercise – I just wish I had some of these delectable fabrics lying around in my stash! IMG_0987

Instead I delved into my ridiculously large collection of blues to create this scrappy little number.IMG_0989 IMG_0990 How I came to have so many blues is a complete mystery since everyone knows I’m totally besotted with the colour pink!

  1. Every one of these quilt (tops!) is simply striking. It's a treat to see the same pattern played out in so many ways. Would love to see them all finished together, hanging in one place, so the differences could be studied side-by-side. So much personality in each of them. Di, don't be blue; we all know you're really in the pink!

    Thanks for a chance to see these great quilts! You gals are awesome!


I love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment.
