The challenge I set myself with this quilt for the new wing of the Rest home, was to incorporate images that stimulate memory and represent our local area. Thus came about the old advertising logos, some of them local, and the road signs with South Waikato place names on them. Some of the residents gave me ideas for logos that they remembered from way back.

I enjoyed making this retro caravan cot quilt so much, each caravan was a little adventure. It also gave me a canvas to do lots of variety of machine quilting.

3 July 2017 So many people have asked me for this pattern that I need to clarify that I’m sorry but I don’t have a pattern. Below I have put the page of images I gathered from the internet and then copied them by hand to the size I wanted. I used a similar technique to this tutorial  http://sewlikemymom.com/the-ultimate-applique-post/ to turn the drawings into applique. Give it a go, it’s not that hard 🙂 The images below aren’t mine but belong to other talented people!
