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!

Such a happy quilt it's lovely. Enjoy the quilting there is so much to look at while you do it. You can have fun using what you've learnt from the classes.

Thanks Lois, yes what are you up to my friend :)

Wendy -

Wow your quilt is fabulous, I agree it reminds me of your watercolors!

Here's another look at my top, waiting to be quilted. I've taken Jacque Gering's machine quilting classes and purchased Skillbuilder panels to practice. Wish me luck!

Finally get to put my finished quilt on the thread. I thought about adding more embroidery and beads/buttons but I think it's busy enough.

Which bits have you pulled out Barb. I did the border measurements by measuring my quilt rather than the size given by the pattern /2 or it wouldn't have fitted. Used plain squares rather than the given pattern which made it easier. .

I've finished :woohoo: . I blocked it just by steam ironing on the back and itt lays fairly square now. The colour runs are less noticeable now I've quilted it to death and touched up some areas with a white paint except in certain light when those areas glow!! I'll put up pics later this morning, it's a bit dark still for photos. I put it in our groups show in Wirksworth and I got some really nice feedback, even a handshake from one visitor. :lol:

Can you show us how far you've got too.
Do we know what next years quilt is yet?
