An update from The Country Yard

Autumn Vases by The Country Yard
Finished size 57" x 57"
Included in your $55.00 registration fee you will receive all the fabrics, pattern and thread to construct the centre nine blocks (36" x 36").  You can happily finish your quilt here, or by extending the log cabin blocks on to the border you will get the illusion of this quilt being set on point.  We have simply framed our quilt in one of the dark print fabrics we have used throughout the quilt.
Our quilt has been beautifully quilted by Leeanne Hopper of Quilt Me Kiwi.  Be sure to check out her blog

The Apple Basket "Roundabout" Quilt

The Apple Basket Shop Hop Quilt is called "Roundabout", I have incorporated cotton fabrics mainly Kaffe Fassett and Tula Pink and hand dyed wool fabrics. I have embellished the centre with Debbie Abrahams glass beads and Sue Spargo's Eleganza threads,  this is optional and is an extra cost for the embellishing kit.  The backgrounds are all Moda fabrics and include crosses, circles, spots and hexagons on a variety of greys.

This is the part of the quilt "Roundabout" that you will receive with your "Passport" when you register, ($55.00) minus the two sashing's around the centre block.  The centre hexagon and green circle is in hand dyed wool fabric - very vibrant.
Borders, sashing's and binding for the entire quilt are an additional cost. 

We are now taking registrations for "Roundabout Quilt" on our website.

"Spot the Difference"

The Country Dawn Shop Hop quilt is based on the Modern Quilt philosophy and we have allowed plenty of negative space for those that enjoy quilting.  It comprises nine blocks and nine sets of spots. This is our layout and instructions will be included as per above, however we will show you in the weeks to come what else you can do with these cute spots and blocks.  The beauty of this quilt is that the spots are pre-cut and pre-fused so all that is needed to complete is applique, quilt and finish in your style. You will be able to purchase additional spots and background fabric, thread and embellishments to make this quilt your own.
We are now taking registrations for this quilt on our website

Patchwork Passion "Hexies in Flower Pots"

Our 2016 Shop Hop Quilt is finished and we are thrilled with the result and
 hope that you will like it too.

It is made in 1800s Reproduction fabrics from our extensive collection.
The flowers are made using the English Paper Piecing technique 
that is so popular right now.

The hexagon flowers, pots, leaves, stems have been hand appliqued onto the background

Your kit will include all the fabric for the nine blocks, the instructions 
and the card templates.

We will have a finishing kit so you can make your quilt look the same as ours.
It will include the sashing, borders and binding, plus finishing instructions.

Our quilt was quilted by Helen Harford and we love the way her quilting makes the flowers 'pop'.
