Another one of my projects from the past - this is a wall hanging called "Valentine Bouquet" and was designed by Hilary Gooding. This was a kit that I bought from my local quilt shop, Quilters Haven, and is uses the "Hearts and Flowers" range of fabric by Makower. The finished size is 48".....
...this shows a close-up of the roses in full bloom and the rose buds. This was my first major attempt at machine applique - and I don't think it looks too shabby!! This wall hanging is completely machine quilted with a cream variegated quilting thread, using a mixture of cross-hatching, straight row quilting and finally free-motion quilting. I suppose I should've really shown you this one in February!
