Well this morning the weather much better, and I was able to bet a picture of my latest quilt without it blowing all over the place! This is what I have been busy stitching over the past 5 weeks, and has filled every spare moment that I've had, as there is a HUGE amount of applique in this project! The pattern is Flowerdale, by the Australian designer Gail Pan, and was purchased as a kit online from an Australian quilt shop about 5 years ago. I can't believe it had been in that box for so long! This has been made with a selection of fabrics from the Blueberry Crumb Cake collection by Blackbird Designs for Moda, and these fabrics have been lovely to sew with, both by machine for the piecing and by hand for the applique. Now I just need to save up my pennies ready to take this over to the long arm quilter so she can work her magic on it!
