    Hi all :) I went to the Malvern show yesterday and there was a wall hanging of appliquéd terraced houses and at the forefront of it there were quilts hanging on the washing line to dry. It was situated behind the ladies selling the postcards of the quilts for charity.

    Did anyone take a pic please or know if it is a pattern you can buy? Really wish I had bought a card of it now. It doesn't have to be this exact one though if anyone knows of a pattern with quilts drying on a washing line it would be really appreciated.

    I've googled and I can find this one, which is pretty, but I would prefer something bigger with more detail really, like a house and garden, but maybe I can use it as a starting point.

    Thanks for any ideas x

    I was at Malvern on Thursday - didn't even see it. So much to see, so little time! But it was a great show, once again. Try Flickr or one of the other photo sites in a few days time, you may be lucky. :)

    I hadn't thought of that thanks, I think because it was at the end of the row and behind their stall it was a bit tucked away. We had a good time too, I was trying to be good and not spend much, but think I was too good!

    I have a friend who made a beautiful scenic wall hanging a few years ago, which sounds JUST what you are looking for. It has a tree on the left hand side, with a vista across fields with a house and hills and quilts which are blowing in the wind!! I was wracking my brain last night trying to remember who the designer was but to no avail. I will email this lady in Spain and find out for you as it is beauty and sounds right up 'your street' !!

    :-D

    It is a wonderful wall hanging, I was living over in Spain at the time and my friend was doing it as part of a class in the one local quilting shop in the town. I remember loving how the quilt pattern reflected the motion of the quilts blowing in the wind, it is very realistic, you can see the 'waves' in 3D!! I have sent her a message so hope to hear back soon.

    :-D :-D :-D
