More secret quilts revealed......................

Hi there quilt lovers today I have two more of the 'secret' quilts to reveal. The Country Yard girls have been very busy making some beautiful quilts so their customers can rest their eyes on some very tempting quilt candy. The first one is 'Garden Maze' a Lynette Anderson design, made with Lynette's fabrics.

Measuring 58" x 70" custom quilted, poly/cotton batting, Glide thread and the binding attached completely by machine.

Lynette's sample had quilted hearts, but I had different ideas, Kerryn said go for it! Using a curved ruler (ProEcho) and some free hand looped feathers and swirls.

The swag border worked well to frame the quilt, some 'picket fence' quilting on the outer edge helped pop the swags.

Kerryn chose a grey Tula Pink wide backer for the backing.........................

Next is 'In the Spring' a design by Leonie Bateman a sweet table topper........................

           Measuring 38" square, poly/cotton batting, Kerryn asked for light custom quilting.

Sunday saw me out tramping again, this time Tanekaha Forest . A beautiful spot with some lovely views of Mangawhai beach.

We ended the day with a swim in the ocean and an icecream.........a perfect way to end the week!


  1. I really love the quilting on Garden Maze. Very creative and it works so well.
    What a gorgeous view on your tramp!

  2. You girls sure have been busy!! I love the feathers & swirls in the first quilt - the 2nd quilt, is that wool felt?? Those flowers in your last quilt pic sure do look like wool felt?

  3. You have probably heard the saying ..and the name of a book I have by Lee Cleland....A QUILT IS NOT A QUILT UNTIL ITS QUILTED! Your quilting makes these quilts Leeanne. Beautiful work!

  4. Lovely feathers and swirls, adding beautiful texture, I'm pleased you went in this direction rather than hearts.

  5. what beauties love them both and the quilting finishes them off so very well. Good to have had a swim and ice cream! though I have to own up to not being able to swim, seem to not move them slowly sink

  6. Great quilting Leeanne, love the backing on the first quilt and could see that sweet table toppa at my place!

  7. I am with Julie, love the feathers and swirls on the first quilt, they look amazing. Then the able topper is very nice too. You had a tramp in a beautiful place....swim and ice cream to wind up the day sounds the best!!!

  8. Aren't they lovely quilts, Leeanne? And of course beautifully finished too!
