Dee made these simply amazing festive Luna Lapins. She made sure to check our bags and pockets when she left as we were very keen to keep them!

We were absolutely in awe of the stunning Tilda Quilter’s Holiday made by Julie and quilted by Sandy Chandler. Made using a kit from us following a pattern in Homespun magazine. Breathtaking work from them both.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Margaret has made a simple but beautiful quilt top using a selection of flannels from the shop. We all wanted to take it home. For extra snuggle factor she is backing it with our polar fleece. When using a fleece backing you do not need wadding.

 

Joanna was inventive with a Heather and Sage panel and made this beautiful quilt for her grandchild.

Alicia has been super productive and has made three versions of Life’s a Journey for gifts.

Which is your favourite colour way? We think it is hard to choose as they all look beautiful.

 

Siobhan put her own twist on the lovely Garden Gathering Bag by Gail Pan. She used a variegated thread in place of redwork to create a superb result.

 

 

Trish has made this festive table runner using the Blizzard range of fabrics.

She made a pieced back too, lovely.

 

Alicia has been very busy. These two beautiful quilts brought a smile to our faces.

Heartstrings by The Birdhouse Here, There & Everywhere by Hatched and Patched made with a fabric pack from us.

 

Michelle bought the Market Garden Quilt Fabric pack from us. After making it up and gifting it to her mum she is about to buy a second pack to make one for herself. We can see why. Her quilt is stunning. A blend of mainly Hatched and Patched Market Garden fabric and Lanacot Wools.

 

 

 

Sally  plucked up the courage, after a little persuasion from us, and made the Tilda Lazy Gardener quilt using a kit from us. She is pleased with it and we think deservedly so.

 

Claire made up the Cottage Garden Kit from Beaks and Bobbins. She says she has not worked with ribbon and beads before and loved the process of learning and developing new skills while she was recovering from illnesses. We love her work and the way it is displayed.

 

Gill made her Little Dresden Quilt entirely from Lynette Anderson scrap bags. We are in awe and love it so much. No piece of fabric is too small to be utilised!

 

 

Lorraine designed this quilt herself using mainly Blume and Grow fabrics. Some of the blocks are by Thimble Blossom and Lori Holt. What a triumph this is.

 

Mel showed us her absolutely stunning landscape, titled The Meadow, using fabric and lace scraps. We love her use of all the tiny bits of fabric and lace and the mix of stitch and appliqué.

 

Look at this lovely example of the Willowbrook Market Garden Quilt. Designed by The Birdhouse and pieced by Tess using her stash.

 

We love Tilda here at Coast and Country and look at this beautiful example of the Embroidery Flower Quilt. It is a Tilda pattern and uses Tilda Solids to give the impression of an embroidery design.

We like the way the quilting has been done too.

 

Sylvia dropped by to show us her simply gorgeous Celtic Knot quilt made using Liberty fabric. Such a lot of hard work using hand applique and hand quilting. Utterly beautiful but she says it will end up in her wardrobe. This needs to be displayed for all to see, a proper heirloom.

Look at this joyous photo of little Lane sat on the Seagull Quilt made by his Great Grandma Valerie in Canada using a fabric pack from us. The Seagull Quilt pattern is in the Nautical Quilts Book by Lynette Anderson. We are in love with both Lane and the quilt.

Look at this stunning version of Hatched and Patched BOM The Santa, The Tree, The Turkey and Me. Jacqueline visited us to show us what she’d created using her stash of felt and fabric scraps from our popular scrap bags. We love the original design that uses wool applique, but we adore this version too. Look for the fussy cut images and the clever use of a variegated thread for the meandering hand quilting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kim showed us her deliciously colourful quilt made by combining Kaffe Fasset fabrics from a fat 1/4 bundle, with a bright white sashing. Stunning.


Look at Lorraine in her gorgeous patchwork jacket from the Great British Sewing Bee Book. She used a selection of our fabrics plus a quirky birdhouse end of roll bargain for the lining and a bright pop of colour for the binding. She said she went way out of her comfort zone making this but is so happy she did. We love it Lorraine.

Jill says she is a relative newcomer to quilt making but we are thoroughly impressed by her perfectly pieced Spoondrift Quilt by Janet Clare. She has used the To The Sea Fabric kit. Absolutely stunning.

 

Look at this beautiful lockdown quilt from Sarah, using her stash bought in a hurry before we closed the first time. It is a gorgeous blend of needle turn applique using William Morris fabrics and superbly quilted by Sandy Chandler.

 

 

 

Look at this labour of love from Anne.

She made this Noah’s Ark quilt for her grandson from a Jo Colwill

pattern in the Cowslip Country Quilts Book

 

 

 

 

 

We were thrilled when Brenda brought in her Bluebird Quilt by Janet Clare that she’s had as a kit & was given as a gift last year, how gorgeous!

 

The ladies at St Wenn Quilters have been busy making this delightful quilt in honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. We think it is stunning. Well done all involved

 

 

 

This beautiful Camden Bag was made by Rachael and she’s making many more. Using the pattern by Two Aunties, a jelly roll and the jumbo and super jumbo Dill buttons. We nearly didn’t let her have this bag back!
Look at these gorgeous cushions made by ladies on a recent workshop at a local group, taught by Sally using her Honeybun Kisses pattern

 

 

 

 

 

 

Look at this beautiful Around My Garden quilt completed by Deborah using a kit from us. Just stunning

Ann has made this pretty cushion using her stash of One Stitch at a Time fabric by Lynette Anderson. She’s now busy making kits for her sewing group so they can make one too. We think it is beautiful.
Linda came back in with a new summer version of her Kimono that she has lovingly made using selection of Cranberries and Cream fabrics. It took one layer cake, two charm packs and 2 mini charms and was made using a vintage Vogue pattern.
Fiona has used the kits in the Platinum Jubilee Box to make the bunting, Union Jack cushion and the pincushion. She has added extra details with machine embroidery and we think it all looks amazing. Fiona said some of the embelishments were to hide errors but we are sure they are really purposeful design elements. How often do we do something similar and end up with a much improved individual project.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Look at these delightful cards that Lisa made using one of our Lucky Dip Stitchery kits, aperture cards and her imagination. We love that she has been inventive with the threads, fabrics and images.

 

 

 

 

Jane has made this very beautiful quilt using mainly French General fabrics.

These two Easter Egg Hunt wall hangings were made by Deborah. We love how she has put her own twist on them both. Pattern is by Hatched & Patched

 

 

 

 

Nautical Flag quilt by Jan
Jan asked us to create a vibrant kit for this Nautical Flag quilt. This pattern is in Nautical Quilts book by Lynette Anderson.
Alison Made this seaside bunting from our button and fabric kits
Kathy appliqued a cute trio of elephants onto a quilt top made using Little Ducklings fabrics
Sue also used Little Ducklings fabrics for her quilt top. We love how the two quilts look so different but so pretty.
Look at this amazing quilted kimono worn proudly by it’s creator. It was a real labour of love and we are pleased that we helped with the creation of her vision. From sketches and an idea of colours to contrast with the William Morris print, the kimono came to life.

 

Pat has been busy making these two beauties. One using Janet Clare fabrics and the other the Habitat range. Very different looks but both lovely.

 

Cindy has been very busy with these quiilts, some inspired by photos in the Quiltmania Diary that we sell each year. What gorgeous colours.
