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!

Finally, here is month 1 (my "dream house" based on a "Château" picture), sitting on my next round's fabric..... And before Month 2 instructions are out! :woohoo:
I know I have to embelish that "sky" with some embroidery, or I will leave room for "nice" quilting - if I ever can get to that :lol: !
I want to wait until this quilt develops a bit more...

By the way, the next round of little squares is 36 x 36 - so for us, it will be 2 strips of 34 squares (17" finished) for the top and bottom, and 2 strips of 36 squares (18" finished) for left and right sides. I might as well prepare this and be ahead. Month 2 looks like a lot of appliqué (and I think I will give hand appliqué a try).

Yes, it is a recipe I came across when I was in the Girl Guides, I think we just called them baked bananas and they are definitely better done on a campfire B) Just try not to burn your fingers or tongue when eating them ;)

Oh Rosemary, that sounds yummy. Sounds like something we used to make in Girl Scouts in the campfire. Was it called a banana boat? If I remember you slit the banana still in it's peel, stuff it will chocolate pieces and...(can't remember what else, perhaps mini marshmallows and nuts?). Then wrap in in foil and put it in the coals. yum, yum, yum!
Almost as good as somemores.

Marilyn, beautiful start.

Terrie, can I have one of your bananas - I want to peel it, put it in tin foil, cover it with brown sugar and bake in the oven for 15 mins, then take it out, unwrap, scatter a flake chocolate bar over it and return to the oven for 5-7 mins nom, nom nom! dribble! :kiss:

Marilyn that is amazing I want to live with you. I think you should needle turn the antlers. Then you can chuck the banana back at Terrie :)
