I enjoy doing custom work, and this quilt, a beautiful example of machine applique, gave me another opportunity. The small stippling around the flowers really make them pop. I try to match the thread color to the background as much as possible so the flower is emphasized, not the stitching. I stitched in the ditch between the border and the main body of the quilt. The border has a leaf vine and curl treatment. Between all sixteen flower blocks there is also a leaf vine and curl that swirls around. Happy quilting!
Fun with Flowers
Today I worked on a quilt that was a customer’s very first quilt. How fun is that? I wanted to make it special, yet affordable for her. For the design we came up with a basic meander, except for the small white border where I put a flower and leaf meandering vine. Not sure how well this will show up, so I’ve added a photo of the back of the quilt as well. I think it turned out really cute! Happy quilting!
