Baskets and giveaway

Everyone can enter the giveaway, i send it anywhere in the world.

My baskets, i have stitched over 60 now and they are very addictive. Must find some more fabrics as i am only using red/cream shirtings for backgrounds.

Have a wonderful weekend, we are going the the Brisbane Defence base for a parade of all the return Soldiers including our son-inlaw.

Auntie Green's garden

Yes me again, I have just heard for the designer Irene Blanck and her version is going to be available at three different shops very soon. As soon as she gets in touch on when they are in the shops I will pass on the info to you here. Have a great day. Christine

Auntie Green

I have just heard form the shop and apparently the pattern is no longer available, no reason given and I am not sure why that would be. If I hear any more I will let you all know. Sorry for anyone that has tried. Christine

Auntie Green's Coverlet

or as Irene Blanck calls her version: Auntie Green's Garden

I am glad to have large sliding doors as I could tape part of the pattern ( this is the centre ) on one door for tracing to my fabric, i only trace the bare minimum for placement.

If you have always loved the quilt you can get the pattern from Threadbear in Victoria Australia, for the price the pattern is $ 55 plus postage.

Now that beats the price someone else here in Australia is going to charge, a whooping $ 720 for the pattern only, no mistake that is what the BOM is going to cost.
Once you have picked yourself up of the floor do yourself a favour and check out the above website.
Irene's version is minus the last applique border, but it already measure 78 x 90 inches ( big enough for me), you could design the last applique border with the elements of the previous one.

Anyhow, have a great weekend.
Edit: looks like the pattern is not listed as yet, if you click on their newsletter and open the one for June 2012 you can read all about it and order.
