From Fairholme, to brighten up this dreary, stormy week ...

Lynette returned from her trip to Europe, followed immediately
by a week in the country, and the very next day produced this
lovely sashed 9 patch in 30s reproduction fabrics - magic!
It did not, magically, leave a visible hole in her 30s
 repro stash ... 
It is a generous donation to our community quilt collection - 
thanks Lynette, we don't know how you did it!
Elizabeth appliqued over 1900 pieces of fabric over 11 months
(she thinks that is a long time to take to make one quilt -
we assured her it wasn't). The design is her own, including
the thistle for Scotland, the rose for England, the shamrock
for Ireland and the daffodil for Wales. Her hand quilting
is intricate and beautiful.
The backing is this vibrant print, bought like all of the fabric
Elizabeth used, from Sydney based online shop, Fabric Garden
