I have always loved any antique quilt that included red, green , a bit of yellow and perhaps a little pink and of course plenty of applique. I have always felt a full applique quilt would be biting off more than I could cope with so it had remained "one of those days" type of dreams until last week.... I don't know what changed but I found myself drawing up the pattern from a photo of a beautiful antique gem....next I was at my LQS working out yardage AND buying it, still a little in shock at what I was doing.
Now , so close to the finish line of the first block, I don't know what I was so worried about, it's been really fun and I cannot wait to get all the blocks done. I haven't yet decided if there will be an appliqued border or not, I will make that decision after another 8 blocks are completed! So, another progress photo! I will be using the same fabrics in each block, I love the colours together on the centre flower! It's not exactly perfect but I love it how it is.
and a close up of miss pretty...
I'd love to keep chatting but I need to sew a couple more leaves and / or flowers on before I have to make dinner. Why do families have to eat???
