I put the last stitches in the binding on Wednesday night and Thursday after kindy we trotted down to Semaphore to photograph the quilt hanging over the jetty (this was really an elaborate ruse for me to get my hands on an ice-cream from my favourite ice-cream parlour on Semaphore Road - but that's just between us).
Here it is hanging over Semaphore jetty with the Palais in the background. I really loved making this quilt - you just sew strips together like a demon and and then with some clever cutting you make blocks and in no time you have a quilt top sewn together!
This quilt was inspired by the Summer in the Park video tutorial by the Missouri Star Quilt Company. But as with Briar Rose I didn't want to just start sewing and not know how much fabric I would need or how big a quilt I would get out of one jelly roll, so I have written a pattern for it. The pattern is again fully supported by CAD diagrams and detailed instructions and you can download it from Google Docs by clicking here or by clicking on the photograph on the right hand side bar.
Mum quilted it for me using the Bountiful Feathers pantograph by Lorien Quilting. It really suited the feather or wave print in the Salt Air fabrics.
Thanks again to everyone at the Missouri Star Quilt Company for endorsing my pattern. It is very generous and I really appreciate your support. You can view the original you tube video here.....
