Items of Interest

This wallhanging was commissioned by a lady in the village.
Her great-grandson has been named after her late husband Brodie - who she always nicknamed bunch.

She gave me a picture she had painted and asked me to recreate it as a wallhanging - each grape is the size of a 5p piece and was appliqued on.

Clare Kingslake's Christmassy table mat, which I turned into a cushion
This birds wallhanging was made for a couple who held their wedding reception at the farm - the heart reads 'Maidencourt 2009'.


This is Susan Sittig who made the wallhanging on the left. Susan has held a couple of Afro-American quilt
workshops at Lorne Hill Farm.
Some bunting I made for my mother's 80th birthday party

This is a rustic Angel. She is made using a pattern from the Rustic Angel shop in Moulsford.
We have a small selection of fabrics from there to sell at our workshops.

This is my take on the Autumn Leaves lap quilt, which was covered at one of the workshops
I started this quilt when I was a child. I have eventually got round to adding to it. I decided to make it bigger using the crazy quilting since I 'renovated' a friend's quilt from the 60s or 70s which had been made in this way.  Everyone liked the 'patchiness' of that old quilt, even though the fabrics were a complete mish-mash, so I thought I'd finish mine in a way that would keep it in it's era.  I plan to put it on our old rocking horse in my workshop (which should be finished soon....)
This is good old Round the World.  I bought the fabric from the fat quarter store in the states.
We had a bring and sell night at my quilt group and someone brought in the farm fabric (Saltpot Farm I think it was called) and the Debbie Mumm blue fabric.  I bought it all for about £10, added some red fabric I already had and it almost made itself.

A few items for Christmas fayres - peg bags and advent calendars

This is the start of a Double Wedding Ring quilt – something I’ve wanted to make for ages.  I am following John Flynn’s method, which is very easy but also very time-consuming and repetitive.  It will probably take me ages because I keep getting distracted.
This will eventually be a crazy house throw.  We held a teaching day here at the farm and Keron Burgess taught us how to make these crazy houses – very quick and easy but I’ve lost the smallest one so until I find it will stay in pieces.

Texas Quilters

This wall hanging comes from a quilting group in Texas.  They got in contact with the Market Square Quilters and some of us have decided to correspond.  The flower fabric depicts Texas wildflowers and members of the group have signed their names.  I shall have to make a wall hanging to send to them.
