Barbara made this very interesting quilt using a pattern which, I think, came from Patchwork Passion of Auckland.
The applique shapes are quite naive . Barbara requested simple shadow quilting around the flowers.
We agreed that a simple feather would look good in the cream border, that was interesting as when I came to stitch the feather I realised I had to “wrap” the feathers around the applique flowers.
…and of course I just had to stitch some cotton onto the cotton reels..
It was interesting to work with oblong blocks rather than squares. The pieced blocks had me puzzled for a bit until I realised that i could stitch an oval on there and fill it with petals.
Thanks for asking me to quilt for you Barbara.
One more peek.
Thanks for popping by
