Let's discover Janelle's blog and her beautiful quilt Lucy Boston POTC published in Quiltmania #116.
I started Lucy Boston POTC in October 2011 and finished her in June 2016. I was attracted to the English paper piecing technique, as I had just started a hexagon quilt and loved the fussy cutting to give visual effect. I have mainly used reproductions fabrics (lots of Judy Rothermel fabrics which are a favourite) for the fussy cutting blocks, and then used a scrappy look of shirtings etc for the block borders to try and use up some fabric and give a scrappy look and more depth with the colour. My favourite colour purple is used for the joining squares and border pieces, binding and backing. Lucy is all hand tacked and pieced, with a custom machine quilting done by Sarah Lennon.
I have loved working on her, and since starting Lucy I have incorporated epp in a lot of my designs and quilts, just a great way to use fabric and colour.
I started designing my own quilts about 10 years ago, working from home, and now run regular classes in NSW, Australia.
My blog www.countrymattersdesign.com hopefully gives a little insight into what I do and the style of quilts that I love to create, mainly reproduction, scrappy with lots of fabric and colour, and a mix of techniques, with some having a quilt-as-you-go finish.
Come visit the blog of Janelle and share with her!

This quilt’s very intriguing block is taken from Chuck Nohara’s book 2001 Nouveaux Blocs de Patchwork; yes, that one again, but it is an inexhaustive source of inspiration!
Lovely reproduction fabrics from different Moda collections make up the palette that Michèle very beautifully orchestrated in this elegant quilt that will make your bed a veritable queen’s bower!
