The Road Home Row Along - My Home of Adelaide


I have teamed up with a whole bunch of talented people to bring everyone The Road Home Row Along featuring rows of home towns, special places and places we love.
For my row it had to be Adelaide, South Australia. The city I grew up in on the south side and now live a 30 minute drive north of Adelaide.
The Festival Centre on the banks of the River Torrens with the city centre in the background.

This is my row. 


I have selected 4 things to represent Adelaide, South Australia. Starting from the left I have the Rotunda that you can find in Elder Park, not far from the Festival Centre pictured above. A bunch of grapes for the great wine regions around Adelaide, which are not too far from the city. The last block is the lighthouse for Port Adelaide  where most of the ship that visit dock. Lastly the sashing along the bottom of the row represents the River Torrens that runs through the heart of Adelaide, which you can see in the above picture.
Progress shot of the grape block.
 All the applique pieces in place ready for stitching. with your favourite applique stitch.

The lighthouse block which is foundation pieced(paper pieced)

Now I haven't finished mine yet. I can't decide if I want to add more rows to make a quilt or just quilt it and bind it as a wall hanging. We will see what happens.

Now here is the pattern to make my row.

Here is the template file that going with the above instructions.

Also there is two giveaways on offer. Plus more each day with each row that is released. You can enter them all as you collect the rows. We have an Anita Goodesign Machine Embroidery CD and a Calibre Cutting Mat on offer for you to win.

Thanks for your pretty row! I lived in Halifax, Nova Scotia at one time and the Public Gardens has a rotunda just like yours.

What a great interpretation! My daughter loved Australia and would have loved to stay there!

I think your row would make an awesome wall hanging! Hung above a staircase of door opening, it would look so cool!

Cynthia Woodham said...

I was wondering about a wall hanging to hang over my office door. Thanks for visiting.

This rotunda must have taken some time to make. And concentration, too. But worth it. It's gorgeous!
Thank you for participating to my Fabric, Thread and Yarn link party. Have a nice Sunday!
