Stars Hollow by Janelle Wind

Janelle Wind of Cooranbong, NSW, was provided with a fat quarter bundle of Emma Jansen’s new fabric range, The Linen Cupboard, and this is the lovely quilt she created. The Linen Cupboard fabric range is distributed by Charles Parsons. Janelle says of her quilt, “I will always remember that I made this quilt while watching one of my favourite shows, Gilmore Girls. Now, if you aren’t a fan of Gilmore Girls, then you may not know that Stars Hollow is the name of the town where the story is set. So, for the weeks where I sat in my studio alone, working on this quilt, I was kept company by the townspeople of Stars Hollow.”

Four Card Trick by Wendy Whellum

Clever fabric placement creates the illusion of overlapping cards in the Four Card Trick block. Although the block appears complex, it is constructed nine-patch style with three simple units. Wendy Whellum of Daw Park, South Australia, used a yellow background fabric, a border fabric and delved into her scrap collection for the remainder of the quilt.


Fandangled Triangles by Lynelle Slade

Lynelle Slade of Armidale, NSW, says of her quilt, “Despite how it looks, there are NO set-in seams in this quilt and although there’s lots of cutting and piecing, it isn’t actually a hard quilt to make. It comes together in small manageable sections and is a great quilt to use up some scraps. I wanted to make a quilt using the Flying Birds block and had been thinking about it for some time. Once I sat down and started drawing, it came together very quickly — making it, on the other hand, took quite a bit longer!”
