As we progress along our quilt making journey we find pattern designers who we have an affinity with. Usually we fall in love with their style of quilts, their fabric choices and the content of information they include in their patterns. For a number of years I have admired the Australian pattern designer Megan Carroll, and I have a number of her patterns stashed away to make when time is more of my friend.
I have recently been in contact with Megan, and she has agreed to supply her patterns to the shop. It was a big pinch me moment when I took delivery of her beautiful quilts, Worthing Downs and Miss Matty's Parlour to hang in the shop.
Miss Matty's Parlour is a beautiful quilt, made entirely with hand piecing. It can be made with English Paper Piecing if that is your preference, but you will need to cut your own papers. The quilt consists of some large singular hexagons and other quite intricately pieced hexagons. It is a great quilt to showcase your fussy cutting abilities and your stashed fabrics, and like all hexagon projects, very portable.
Worhting Downs features a lovely centre appliqué design which is surrounded by a collection of small pieced blocks with some broidery perse. Again a very portable project, and a great quilt to showcase those beautiful fabrics that have been collected.
It has been a real pleasure walking past these quilts each day and pausing to admire the beautiful fabrics Megan has collected over her time of quilt making. I am also admiring the beautiful quilting by Susan Campbell. I'm in the process of making up some starter fabric packs, they will be available very soon.
And just to offer a little tease, Megan has a brand new quilt which is almost complete. All going to plan, you will see it at AQC in a few short weeks.
Well back to cutting and folding for me, have a great weekend.
