I am very blessed, I have many people whom I call friend. Today I wanted to share some of the gorgeous quilts using my fabrics that my friend Wendy Sheppard has worked on through the year.
Here I am with Wendy, we are holding Daisy Chain Cottage quilt which is one of my favourites for this year, we made it using fabrics from 'Pocketful of Daisies'.
Wendy worked on the maths for the piecing and I did the applqiue (Kay Harmon made the quilt, more on Kay another day).
We have just three kits left to make this gorgeous quilt (finished size approx. 77" x 89"), the kit comes with the pattern :) Buy the kit now.
Wendy is a prolific designer/blogger, she works tirelessly to create fabulous quilt paterns for many magazines worldwide and this year her lovely book 'Recreating Antique Quilts' was published by Landauer.
I was lucky enough to be gifted a personalised copy from Wendy and even more thrilled to discover that one of the quilt designs in the book uses fabrics from my 'Starry Night' fabric collection.
We worked together (Wendy did the pieicing part and I bet you can guess which part I did!) on a project using my fabrics, 'Pocketful of Daisies' which is in Australian Quilters Companion.
This sweet banner style quilt which was made by one of my wonderful sample makers Jill Beban, looks so nice is this conservatory. In fact it looked so nice the lady whose home was used for the phototgraphy now owns the banner!
Another gorgeous project will be coming soon in Quilters Companion magazine using my fabric collection 'Hearts and Flowers' so stayed tuned. If you are an international customer or just want to save on postage you may like to get a digital subscription of this magazine from Zinio.
Wendy has also been working on a few projects for the UK magazine, Popular Patchwork. I love a nice star quilt and there is one in the current issue (see pictures below), be on the look out for more projects by Wendy coming in future issues...
