One of my favourite quilts....

Today is a 'stitchery link-up' day over at 'Super Mom - No Cape!' and, as I don't have any new embroidery projects to show you for the moment, I would like to share with you one of my favourite quilts which, I made a number of years ago, before I started my blog.


Some of you may know it as it was a block of the month pattern by Lynette Anderson and, it is called 'Fernhill'.


I loved working month by month on this quilt and it remains a favourite to this day.



The photographs here were taken in a previous house we lived in but, it currently hangs in pride of place in my dining room.



Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!



I am linking this post to 'Super Mom - No Cape!' have a lovely week!

  2. I would hang it with pride too, Christine! I enjoyed looking at close-ups of each photo. Apparently you've been an accomplished embroiderer for a long time! Love the background on the blocks too, and the one that looks like snow is so cute! How did you achieve the soft zig-zag on the sashing?

    1. Thank you Linda! I really enjoy being able to see it every day!! The stitch you referred to is just that a three step zig zag which I adjusted the stitch width and length to achieve the look that I wanted. I wrote a post about it..... http://patchworkallsorts.blogspot.ch/2013/06/ingrid.html

  18. What a beautiful wall hanging/quilt. Lynette Anderson does such lovely country work and I just think hanging them up around the house is the perfect way to remember them and show them off.
