Time for another "oldie" - this wall hanging was made in 2008, and is a pattern called "A Patchwork Village" by the Australian designer Rosalie Quinlan - and is a mixture of both patchwork and stitchery.....
...this was purchased as a kit from an online store called Buttonberry (sadly now closed down - Emma and Lisa sold the most fabulous Australian patterns, and it was where I got hooked on Aussie patterns and stitchery!). This shows a close-up of one of the 9 stitchery blocks. This was machine quilted by me, very very simply, using the "stitch-in-the-ditch" technique with a white Mettler quilting thread. This wall hanging has been folded away for far too long - I really need to display this on one of my walls as it is so pretty!
