The Aussies

Quilt Market wouldn't be complete without seeing our Australian friends and designers.    I just love talking to them.   I would really like to have their "accent".

First up...Gail Pan.   She has such wonderful designs.

Love these embroidery patterns.

The minute I saw this one, I knew I had to have the pattern.

Wouldn't this be cute in wool?

This one too!

It's always fun to see Lynette Anderson and see what she's come up with.    She has a new book coming out and was very proud to show it off.

A close up.  I think she said it will be out this summer.   (Hope I got that right, Lynette)

She has a new line of fabric coming out in blues...

and purples.

One of the projects in her new book.

Wouldn't you just love to have this towel in your kitchen at Christmas?   Love it.

Or how about a pillow?

Or two?

Have you seen the new book by The Quilted Crow Girls that just came out recently?

All the projects in the book are right up my alley.... in cottons and wool!

Just sit back and enjoy the show.

I will definitely be adding this book to my library.  

I'm almost finished showing you market pictures.   Just a few more posts.

See ya later.   Hugs, Anne

Oh, you're going to make me go broke!!! I absolutely LOVE all of those patterns. I'm in Lancaster County right now, so may have to keep my eyes open for some of these books.

Wonderful booths and projects and love all three designers.


Candace said...

Oh Anne, how will I ever have enough time to make all these wonderful patterns? I need to live to be 150!!

Beth said...

I love the woolies. I also love Lynette's designs. I went to her schoolhouse. I also went to the schoolhouse that Sue Daly had. Then I took a class with Helen.
So awesome, all of them.

I have to say, the Quilted Crow Girls designs inspire me the most, like you said Anne, with the combination of wool and cotton and with designs that are timeless.

Kathie said...

I love that kitchen towel, very cute!!!

It's wonderful to see our Aussie girls so well received at Quilt market. I already have the Quilted Crow girl's book, so many lovely patterns.

Thank you for the tour! I too so love the Aussie designers you mentioned. I have a dear friend from Australia and she would say we have an accent not them! lol Lovely projects you have shown. And yes, that book is so worth it! Cheers!
