Made with love for a Grandie...

Lyn has been working on this beauty for awhile now, we have seen snippets from time to time but today was the big unveiling.
It will soon be zooming over to Adelaide to make one little lassie very happy and when in the near future the family re-locates to an overseas posting it will travel with her to remind her of home and the love of her Gran.
Lyn always makes a matching cushion cover for the quilts she creates for her Grandies.
 Inspired by 'May Flowers' a quilt pattern from one of our library magazines, Lyn choose to cut each flower from a single piece of fabric, fussy cutting many of the flower centers and strip piecing the alternate blocks.  The original pattern had the flowers cut from the strip pieced fabric, both variations make for a stunning quilt.

While on holiday recently, Lyn was taken with the lovely colours in this fabric length and chose to quilt it in a single piece for a wonderful memento of a great holiday.

Marlene shared this lovely with us today, following a Leesa Chandler pattern found in the Quilters Companion #76 Magazine, published last year.
If you don't have a copy of this mag and would love to make the quilt there are copies available from Leesa's online store 'Chandlers Cottage'

Marlene chose some beautiful australian floral prints for her quilt and a rural toile fabric for the backing
Fiona, of 'Quilting Fairy'  and a group member, followed Lessa's suggestion of an all over gumleaf pattern for the quilting design which shows up beautifully on the background blocks.
