We are again down with Anne is her lovely studio in Devon where she shares with us some of her delightful projects.
Valerie spent a delightful few hours with Anne catching up on the textile projects both old and new – so some old favourites and some new ones.
We get to learn about the Navajo Blanket quilt – an old favourite of them both – which will be shared with you on a monthly basis as a Block of the Month starting Jan 2018 – and as there are different techniques covered in the various sections, this could be considered to be a style of sampler quilt.
Then Anne talks about her Dala Horse quilt, which was inspired by the Swedish horses of the same name, and Anne has combined the applique with some simple half-square triangles to create both a windmill block and the scrappy-style border.
The zig-zag theme continues, but this time without a triangle in sight! – with her Table runner – and do check out the wonderful quilt Anne made for herself from the fabric sweepings (don’t you think thats a great word!) plus calico.
and finally Anne shows us her Turtle Dove project – which has both a Christmas and a Home Dec feel, depending upon the fabrics used.
Thank you Anne for sharing.
(and did you see that Anne’s 5 Baubles project now has a kit, as it was featured recently in the Sewing World magazine – click here for more info)
