Join us on a TQS exclusive 12-month journey into the land of childhood memory with a charming quilt designed especially for TQS by internationally-known Australian designer Lynette Anderson. Lynette combines simple, unpretentious folk art style appliqué motifs with patchwork blocks for a quilt that will be lots of fun to make. Each month we will provide photos, detailed directions for a portion of the quilt, and full-size patterns. We will once again be offering monthly companion teaching videos as well. It all makes for a year of fun and learning!

Wonderful wildflowers grow tangled in the hedgerows.  My grandmother taught me all their names when I was little.  This month’s appliqué represents the glorious flowers I remember from my childhood days.  I arranged the bias stems, flowers, and leaves with the simple spontaneity and joy of a child’s drawing.

My crazy heart is filled with happiness as I dream of long days. I lie back with the warm earth beneath me, the blue sky above, and the sounds and smells of the countryside surrounding me.  My hexagon flowers represent the pretty scabious flowers-sometimes known as butterfly blue or pincushion flowers-that like to grow on sheep grazed fields.  English paper piecing is the perfect technique for making these simple flowers.

Spring is in the air! My heart sings, because I know my best friend is waiting for our arrival at the front gate.  Butch, the black dog, with his wonky ears and a little heart tag, is so pleased to see us.  Mr. Bird is sitting on Butch’s back, hoping that Mrs. Bird will notice him.

The pieced gate goes together quickly.  I could not resist the chance to make some more hexagon flowers!

Quick the naughty fox is running away with the hen, looks like they are having fun perhaps they are in a race! I have fond memories of foxes, when I was young the fox hunt used to come through the fields near my home and my mum used to stand in our large garden and tell the hunters to go away, in my mind the naughty fox was hiding in the bushes in our garden where he knew he would be safe!

I have teamed the naughty fox up with two simple to pieced ‘Golden Gate’ blocks. Which represent my mum the gatekeeper to our garden.
