My Flowerdale quilt (pattern by Gail Pan Designs) was completed and it was time to take some pictures. It's so tricky though, trying to do a photoshoot when it's a bit blustery and you're trying to dodge the showers! The fabrics used for this quilt are a selection from the Blueberry Crumb Cake collection by Blackbird Designs for Moda. This was a kit that had been in my sewing box for about 5 years, and I finally plucked up the courage to make it! It really does have a lot of applique on this one, but it's broken down into 4 sections, which makes it a lot easier. I used my favourite method of applique for this, using applique paper and a gluestick, and apliquick rods. There are lots of tutorials on YouTube for this technique, my favourite is a video with a demonstration by the Australian designer Lynette anderson. Hopefully I'll get some better pictures later when the sun comes out!
