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.
