Synchronicity for Project Linus

Hurrah a UFO finished! This quilt for Project Linus had been sitting in my sewing room waiting to be quilted for ages.

The design is 'Synchronicity' by Brenda Gael Smith which was published in 'Down Under Quilts' in 2006. Brenda's Blog, Serendipity Patchwork, is one I visit regularly as her bright colourful quilts are so lovely. This pattern uses simple strip piecing with very efficient use of fabric. It was perfect for using up some of my stash of batiks and other bright fabrics. I went a bit crazy when I was cutting and piecing the fabrics for this quilt and have enough blocks still to make another quilt of this size!

I enlisted the help of Mr Photographer today for my quilt pictures and the results are so much better than my attempts. I'll now have to get out all my quilts and get him to photographs them properly so I can add more photos to this page.


  1. Quilthaze,
    this is a spectacular quilt- I love these beautiful colors - I will have to go and check out brenda's patterns.
    I came to your blog through Quilt Sue. My name is Anna and I live in Western Canada in a large city called Edmonton. I am a kindergarten teacher in my professional life ( starting my 32 year) and currently teach in a full day kindergarten class. I am on summer break just now but will return to the classroom at the end of August.

    It is great fun meeting quilters from all over the globe who share this same passion.
    Warmest regards,

  2. Hi Anna. Thank you for visiting my blog and for your very kind comments. It's really exciting to make contact with people who live so far away but have similar interests.
    I was also a teacher of young children but now work for our local education authority advising schools on the teaching of technology in primary schools. I recently went from full time to 3 days a week so I could spend quality time with my sewing machine!
