'Caswell Quilt' made by Lynda Johnson, designed by Corliss Searcy, quilted by Frances Meredith Sometimes a quilt walks in the door and you don't want it to leave. This was the case with Lynda's amazing version of the Caswell quilt. Lynda has a great eye for colour and uses fussy cutting to its best advantage. She has put her own spin on it with a lovely applique border and by just doing a selection of the blocks. It's a great size. 'Caswell Quilt' made by Lynda Johnson, designed by Corliss…

And June's nearly over!

Can you believe it's almost the end of June already? Is it just me, or is time going faster and faster? Seriously, things need to just slow down a little ... This has been a big month for me. First of all, I finally finished quilting on my Caswell quilt! If I've done a lot of marking on a quilt, I always like to immerse it completely by washing it in the washing machine after it's done - this way all the blue washout marker is removed, and with hopefully no chance of it returning. Putting it…

Eye candy overload

It has been a while between posts so there is a lot to share.....here is the first instalment! This past weekend a small group of us were invited by a very special friend to travel to Victoria to see the inaugural quilt exhibition of the Castlemaine Applique Group and what an incredible exhibition it was! I took over 80 photos just on the first day so have had to reduce them for the blog. As a lover of appliqué this was like viewing the "cream of the cream" with a very strong focus on…

Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye: It's All About Appliqué!

It's All About Appliqué!

Well, one last visit to the incredible quilt exhibit at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, 2018—and I (Teri) am happy to say that the focus is on appliqué quilts.

The intricacies of the art are a joy to behold, and the bodies of work in these exhibits were no exception…
