Yellow Flower 2008

Our first project! Friends, neighbours and family members from the Camberwell area, Melbourne (Australia) have all participated in hand sewing "Yellow Flower". The majority of sewers had never done patchwork before, so it is a fantastic result. The pattern has evolved slowly from finding a small sample of striped fabric that when sewn in strips look a little like the middle of a daisy, then using the large amount of yellow fabric to carry a daisy colour, adding white petals - and four corners with a mix of green and colours to repeat the centre square colours and suggest leaves.

This quilt is sized for a queen-size bed, measuring 2140mm x 2140mm.

This quilt will be part of the Craft Exhibition at the Royal Melbourne Show 2008. If you would like to purchase raffle tickets for the quilt at $2 a ticket, please email me at, please include your mailing address and number of tickets that you would like to purchase/sell. We will be commencing the raffle mid October 08, tickets butts to be returned by 20th November 08 in time for the draw on Friday 28 November 2008. All proceeds will be donated to the Cancer Council Victoria, you can visit their website at
