Pay-it-forward gift made it to Australia

Hello Everyone!  My pay-it-forward gift to Tracee of Farm Gate Creations finally arrived!  I spent the summer months of 2011 working on this project for her and finally sent it off in November.  It took 8 weeks to arrive and frankly, I was beginning to worry it wouldn't ever get to her.  Fortunately, Tracee received her parcel on Monday and all is well.  Enjoy your quilt Tracee, it was great fun working on that project for you!


I wanted an old fashioned look for this quilt, something to suit the Robyn Pandolph Canadian Cottage fabric, so I opted for a traditional diamond grid quilting pattern.

I didn't follow a pattern for this one, as I had a pack of charm squares and thought I would just sew them together. 
I did look through my Gwen Marston books and found some inspiration there, that's why I have the one near solid border running across the bottom of the quilt and the much wider floral border beneath it.


  1. Seems that in this day and age, 8 weeks is a long time for a parcel to go from one destination to another!! Pretty little quilt and I'm sure she's just loving it!

  2. What a lovely gift! I specially like how a few of the squares catch the eye, the darker brown and the green.


I love hearing from you - thanks for leaving a comment.
