A New Pattern

I saw this quilt hanging in the shop where I learnt quilting in late 2005. I admired the quilt every time I saw it and thought, one day, when my skills are good enough I want to make that quilt. Not too long after that the shop closed. I thought I had lost my chance to make that wonderful quilt.

Imagine my delight when, just recently, I found out the pattern had been re-released! It arrived in the mail yesterday. Hommage to Sallie Ann is another design by Di Ford and the pattern is available from Threadbear in Castlemaine, Vic.

I can't wait to make a start on it, but I have quite a few other projects I am working on at the moment and I really need to finish something before starting another new quilt!

I have made a start on the next round of the Antique Quilt and my SSCS goodies are almost finished.

This is my favourite yellow rose. Its a David Austin rose called Graham Thomas. The bush has lots of buds at the moment, so I will have roses for a while.


  1. just planted 4 David Austin Roses this week and I MUST get a Granham Thomas.........

  2. Taht's a beautiful pattern, Miriam and I love your roses, too!
    Hugs - Lurline♥

  3. How big of a quilt does that pattern make? It sure is lovely! I have never seen it before - possible because it is by an Australian designer?

  4. Oooo wonderful pattern!! Are we suppose to get projects done before we start another? What an odd concept LOL.


  5. The quilt is on my list too. The yellow rose is one of my favourites too.

  6. Very Nice quilt , if you are into roses check out our 3-6ft roses.

  7. The Sallie Ann quilt is lovely and I am excited for you to make it.

    Ahhhh roses....just beautiful and they make me think of my Dad. :o)

  8. Fabulous quilt and fabulous roses. I can almost smell them.

  9. The pattern is wonderful and so are the roses!

  10. I absolutely love the pattern. I am happy that you were able to find it again.
    Your roses are just beautiful!

  11. Simply love your roses, with a bit of imagination I can smell them all the way over here hihi. I know the problem :): finishing before starting another. Must admit: sometimes it works out well but the not always!! Enjoy make the gorgious quilt: you are an experienced quilted by now! Hugs and have a nice day!

  12. My friend Judi Kipling is visiting and was telling me about your blog. I saw these lovely roses and said, "that looks like a Graham Thomas English rose!" Lo and behold it is my most favorite rose, I have one alongside the back of my garage (gayraaj) and it loves it there. It is like a climbing rose and goes to the gutter of the roof!
    Wonderful stuff on your blog!
