OUR NEWEST QUILT... TESSELLATE

We finally have some show and tell of our own for you.  After many, many late nights and lots and lots of drawing, we have a new quilt to share with you.

Our new quilt is inspired from a few different antique treasures.
It is a mix of tessellation mosaic floors from churches and ancient sites from Europe, blended together to create our tribute to these beautiful works of art.

We hope you like it.



So who's quilt is whose?
Will we keep you guessing...... for those that know us well, I'm sure it won't be too hard to work out!
Lisa's version is the one to the left of screen below, Lou's, is the other!

We quilted these on Lisa's Gammill.  Lou's tried her hand at feathers (don't look to closely though) and Lisa also did something new with flowers and swirls.  We are really happy with how they turned out.



Tessellate will be available for purchase from Lilly Patches in Boronia from Friday January 18th and also from  Magic Patch Quilting in Tyabb from Saturday 19th January, where we will be teaching a Cherry's Hall workshop this Saturday.

With special thanks to Maddens Rise Wines for very kindly allowing us to take photos in front of their VERY cool barn.  Please visit them if you're in the Yarra Valley and try some of their amazing wines.


Thanks for visiting,               Lisa & Lou

    1. Hi Carol, thanks for your comment. They are a combination of hand and machine piecing, needle turn applique and english paper piecing. They really could be any applique technique you like but!!
