Here are a few close-ups of Fernhill - this pattern is by the Australian designer Lynette Anderson, and I bought this as a kit (which included all the fabrics for the quilt top and the binding, along with the pattern) from Cross Patch in Wales. I opted to buy the hand painted wooden buttons (a set of raw wood buttons were included but I preferred the painted ones) and these really do add the final flourish! The buttons have just been laid in place for the photographs, they will be stitched in place once the quilt is completed...
..the curly vine was made with a few bias strips, and the pretty Suffolk Puff flowers (made with a small Clover Yoyo maker) were appliqued into place. All the hand embroidery was completed with Weeks Dye Works threads (bought online from Peakside Needleworks, again here in the UK). If you click on the pictures, you cab see a bigger image. This is going off to Janette at J-Quilts this morning, ready for her to add her special kind of magic to this gorgeous wall hanging meanwhile I can doodle with a pencil and paper and design an appropriate label for this pretty Fernhill quilt.
