Cousin Wattle

This beauty went home this week, it is an original design by Leigh Latimore of Port Macquare, and isn't it just lovely.  It has lots of needleturn applique, rounded hexies, and scallops. 
Leonie, who made this lovely, has also put cording around the edge, (the blue), prior to adding the outside scallops.  Very clever and beautifully done.

It is quilted freehand with the aid of rulers and templates.  Leonie said to "go for it" and that she liked more quilting than less, so this is the result.  Feathers, feathers and more feathers, fill and some parallel lines, with a bit of cross hatching in the centre.

I really enjoyed quilting this quilt, and managed to get through half of Ice Station by Matthew Reilly and half of Witness by Nora Roberts on my ipod. 


  1. Beautiful quilt and amazing quilting.

  2. What a beautiful quilt......and your quilting has enhanced all of the lovely applique .....

  3. I love the meandering feather, the quilt looks terrific.

  4. Wow, so wonderful.
