The Quilts that I am showing are my own designs ( unless otherwise stated), please don't take any images from my blog.
The first one was the start of my love for 1930's print, the little nine patch blocks are 2 and 3/4inch finished and are all pieced from squares ( not strip piecing)
I entered the quilt in 2000 and still love it very much, it is very simple in design and quilting, it got a 1st Prize. The quilt was published I think in 2001 in the Australian Patchwork & Quilting Magazine as a pattern.
It is called " 1930's Treasure " no I am not very good naming my quilts.
This is my version of Florence Peto's Calico Garden, it is a row shorter and I designed my own borders. You can buy the pattern for the original version from the Shelbourne Museum or you can find it in the book called Enduring Grace.
The original quilt has no copyright, I email the museum and they said that Florence Peto wrote the instruction for a Magazine and never put copyright on the pattern. That is why there are so many version available.
I called my " Olde Worlde " and entered it in 2001 and it received a 1st Prize.
The quilt is all needle turn applique and hand quilted and it does hang straight but my holder upper person ( dear husband didn't have any patience)
more to come.......
