Gelibolu Bag

Harvey, Tamsin C&T Publishing ePub

FINISHED SIZE: 15˝ × 13½˝ × 1½˝ (38cm × 34cm × 4cm)

Gelibolu is the name of a town and a district in the Çanakkale Province, located in Turkish Thrace. This town is also known as Gallipoli. Gallipoli has a very strong link with Australia, because during the First World War it was the location of a series of memorable battles, including the first major involvement of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC). This campaign was regarded as the greatest Ottoman victory during the First World War and was considered a major Allied failure. The Allied and Turkish forces both suffered heavy casualties; over 11,000 ANZACs were killed and 33,500 injured. The events that took place in the First World War played a major role in the movement toward the Turkish War of Independence and led to the founding of the Republic of Turkey under the leadership of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. Atatürk had been a Turkish commander during the Gallipoli campaign. He led the Turkish National Movement in the Turkish War of Independence and became the first president of the Republic of Turkey in 1923.

Slide Show

Amy Walsh C&T Publishing ePub

by Janine Burke, 69″ × 85″

FINISHED BLOCK: 9″ × 5″

FINISHED QUILT: 69″ × 85″

Back in the “old” days, before digital cameras, we had film. From the times of silent movies, there was always film. These blocks remind me of the days of film, whether slides or reel-to-reel. So put on your favorite film, pop a bowl of popcorn, and make an evening of it!

The following yardage makes a throw-size quilt. Refer to the Slide Show chart (page 62) for alternate sizes and yardage requirements.

Assorted batiks: 33 strips 7″ × 42″ or 6¾ yards total

Binding: ¾ yard

Backing: 5½ yards

Batting: 79″ × 95″

TIP

Cut just 2 contrasting batiks to begin with so that you can construct a test block. This way you can verify the accuracy of your pieces and you can see how your fabrics are going together.

From the assorted batiks, cut:

33 strips 7″ × 42″

From 16 strips, cut each 7″ strip into:

2 rectangles 3½″ × 7″; subcut into
4 squares 3½″ × 3½″ (Unit A).

7 rectangles 3½″ × 7″; subcut into 7 rectangles
3½″ × 5½″ (Unit C) and 6 rectangles 1½″ × 3½″ (Unit B).

Danish Square

M'Liss Rae Hawley C&T Publishing PDF

One afternoon last year, while my daughter, Adrienne, and I were in Copenhagen, I looked out our hotel room window onto the old town square. The fading sunset struck the uppermost rooflines of the buildings, reflecting golden sunlight. The view was so beautiful I immediately wanted to capture the image in a quilt.

Just about any fabric palette or theme will work for this quilt. Just be sure to keep contrast in value— lightness and darkness—in mind when you select the background and fat-quarter fabrics.

fabrics, ranging in value from medium to dark, for blocks
