The weather is warming up in the Northern Hemisphere, and my thoughts are naturally drawn to flowers. Since I by no means have a green thumb, I resort to using other means to express my love for flowers. “April Flowers” is now published in the March/April 2009 issue of Quiltmaker:
It is a queen size bed quilt that I had completed in a week’s time! The fabrics are from April Cornell’s Portugal collection. There are more than 20 different fabrics in this quilt. Click here and here for previous posts:
The quilting motifs on the quilt are repeats of the applique flowers in various sizes:
Can you believe I did the quilting on this huge quite on my home machine? I say that to convince you that it is possible! : ) Speaking of possibility, having my quilts published in magazine would not have been possible had it not been for my quilting mentor Barbara who had encouraged me to try out quilting a few years ago. Every quilt that you see published is a tribute to her (Thanks, Barbara!)
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a great start to your week. I will chat with you again tomorrow.
