Americana Florals: Final Sneak Peeks

Happy Monday, my Friends! I hope you are doing well. I finished quilting my Americana Florals, and shipped it by Express Mail to the editor. The applique blocks are very “Kansas” – they are the Topeka Rose blocks.

Instead of the regular fabric flower centers, I opted to use asymmetrical heart buttons for the flower centers. I thought the buttons give the blocks a slightly different look, with a hint of primitive Americana!

If you look closely, you can see that I have quilted heart floral motifs in between the floral sprigs to match my heart buttons:

If all goes well, this quilt will be featured in the January 2011 issue of The Quilter magazine. That’s all the sneak peeks I can afford to let you see at this point until the quilt is officially published.

Thanks for stopping by. I wish you a lovely week.

  1. Beautiful!! I want to see it also printed on the magazine and I’ll be pleased when you publish it.
    I love that cozy touch of a heart-shped button instead of a “standard ” one .
    Bravo!
    ciao, gloria

  2. Wendy, you’ve got another winner on your hands! It’s so funny, because as you know when you showed the fabric palette before you started work on the quilt, I wasn’t too crazy about them. But wow! I absolutely love this one.
