Don’t call them just “patterns”, please!
We’ve already posted articles about her, her creative genius and her items
that – after a long selection and an as long waiting, since they come from Australia! – we’ve finally and proudly managed to include in our online catalog… However, Lynette Anderson is certainly worth one more post, isn’t she?
And, this time, I’d like to give you some more details about two patterns that are a sort of “little investment”! And, even though this definition also applies to their price (sure, we’re talking of “important” prices”), I’m mainly thinking of the quilting projects these patterns are the basis of!
They’re called Pond House
and My House or Yours
and we’ve put them into the “quilting patterns” category: that’s where you can find them… But, yes, we’ve probably been a bit too reductive, in doing this way
They’re, in fact, real and complete quilting projects!
The Pond House
actually includes ten patterns altogether, gathering all the charts you need to complete the quilt that – in the USA and Australia – was sold as a so-called BOM (Block Of the Month) project – chart by chart, in ten months… In a couple of words, a sort of steady trickle of waiting My House or Yours
is even more consistent, since it’s composed by 13 patterns: 12 explaining each single block and the 13th one giving an overall sight of the whole quilt, so to make the instructions and assembling even clearer
Both of them share the characteristics distinguishing Lynette Anderson
’s creativity: her country inspirations, enhancing her childhood memories in the UK and her personal fondness towards anything that’s strictly connected to nature with heart and soul; her use of warm, perfectly mixed, colors and the masterly match of the most traditional patchwork elements – such as log cabins and stars – with the most up-to-date patchwork techniques, such as appliqué and piecing!
So, whether you’re choosing the Pond House
or My House or Yours
, you’ll get the sure chance of “indulging your whim” with patchwork for weeks, cutting, assembling and quilting a real masterpiece, which is definitely going to draw the attention of many! The above-mentioned “small investment” is then more than ever worth the money: try and you’ll let us know
Hear from me soon and... Happy quilting!
