Back from the country

For those of you have been following my blog for a while, you will know that when I 'disappear' from cyberspace for a while, it means that I have been back to our little farm to spend time with family, do lots of gardening, play some tennis & generally 'escape' the world for a bit. On my return to town & my computer, there are many, many things to share, but where to start? Perhaps a little eye candy? I had the chance to visit one of my favourite quilting shops while I was back at the farm. 'Weigela Design' is in the small country town of Warren in central New South Wales. Warren shire has a population of just over 3000, and is in the heart of irrigated cotton growing country. 'Weigela Design' is owned by the lovely Sue Brennan & a visit to her shop is always inspiring.
There is room after room of beautiful quilts to admire ...
... and of course, no shortage of fabrics to purchase ...
 
... original designs by Sue to inspire, including these sweet little felt Christmas ornaments ...
... a stunning version of  'How to Grow Angels' quilt by Anni Downs of Hatched & Patched ...
... and another sample of a new Hatched & Patched design, called 'Home for Summer'. 
I have more photos of this gorgeous shop to follow, but for now, you can see my posts from previous visits here, here, here and here.
Unfortunately, Weigela Design has no website, or blog, but I can pass on phone contact details for anyone interested.

  1. I love how even though these are traditional quilting patterns, everything looks really fresh and modern. The choices in fabrics and colors are beautiful.
