New

Just back from the quilter and the binding is on. The quilt is called A Little Porch Time by Lynda Hall. I am a member of a Yahoo primitive patchwork group online and we decided to make this quilt like a BOM, showing our blocks as they were made during 2010-11. It is mainly made with Brushed Cottons with some of the applique done in felted wool. It is a large quilt, hence the reason it is lying on the floor to be photographed.




I have also made a start to Karen Cunningham's, The Marriage Quilt. I am making it with felted wool applique on a cotton background. This will be the centre block.


Autumn has arrived and the heat of last weekend has gone and it is cool and
wet. The garden was desperate for a drink. Great days for staying in and sewing.

I have one block made of Lynda Hall's quilt pattern. I like the quilt but just haven't taken time to go further on it. Congratulations on a wonderful finish.

Your ALPT quilt looks wonderful - don't you just love the change of seasons? I'm really enjoying the daffodils this year.

I have long admired your work - your quilts are awesome and so inspiring. I too would like to know where to get the Auntie Green pattern please - also am loving the Marriage quilt and would love to get this pattern as well. Bloggers like you are the best and a wonderful source of information.

I made the centre of my Auntie Green quilt with the pattern from the Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine 1999 and the borders I drew up myself from a photo of the original quilt. There is no commercial pattern for the borders.
Sorry Ladies, you have to do your own.

Dorothy, a wonderful finish on your ALPT, you should send a pic to Lynda. And you started the Marriage quilt, like that you are making it in a combination of wool and cotten.

The little porch quilt looks great, I bet it's better in the flesh with the brushed cottons and wool. Great start to Karen's Marriage quilt too. You pick fabulous patterns!
