Wow, 3 posts in 3 days. Thought I'd just show another of the spectacular quilts I saw at the Australasian Quilt Convention. Like the others I've shown, this beautiful quilt is by Judy Day and is called Auntie Green's Garden.
I was very interested to see this quilt as I remember admiring it in a back issue of Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine. (Haven't had time to hunt it out yet. I have every issue and the current ones are volume 16!)
Isn't the applique and hand quilting amazing? The quilt took 6 years to make and was inspired by a coverlet made in England in the middle of the nineteenth century by a lady known as Auntie Green.
I love how the zig-zags and stripes in the border are made from lots of different fabrics. Auntie Green's Garden (love that name!) won second prize at the Sydney Quilt Show in 2003 in the Professional Predominantly Applique category. All I can say is that the quilt that won first prize must have been awesome.
