Quilt infatuation?

I have been completely seduced by the quilt in the background of this photo since I first saw it on Kathrine's Quilte Stue blog ages ago. I love the simplicity of the design, the freshness of the fabrics and the prospect of a quilt that might go together quickly! The pattern is 'Le Jardin' by Australian designer Lynne Wilson of Threads of Time. Thought I would make it up in these luscious fabrics, Shangri La by 3 Sisters for Moda. My partner in fabric addiction, Peg, has made 'Le Jardin' in rich antique florals - you can see her lovely version here.


  1. Partner in fabric addiction.....that sounds like we are really naughty and not normal..LOL...the fabrics will be stunning in this pattern, so when are you starting!!!!!

  2. Hey Peg you are naughty and not normal but that is why I like both of
