Flower Power

Spring time not only in the garden but in my quilts...

 This week completed the quilting on this top.
 Another top I had completed a few months ago and was placed in the 'to quilt' basket.
I enjoyed making this quilt; no planning, just grabbing bright fabrics and a variety of background fabrics.  

 I had some leftover wool bits and pieces and added them to the centres of the flowers.
 For the backing, I did not have a fabric piece large enough, so I grabbed some leftover blocks and joined them.
  Quilting designs were not planned either, just did what I felt like on the moment.
 Use a varigated thread.
  And these are from my garden taken yesterday and today..

Finally finished something !!!

This quilt is called "Ryland Manor". It was a block of the month designed by Megan Carroll for Threadbear in Castlemaine.

 I finished the top several years ago but like so many other tops still, it went into the big bag of tops I still have to quilt.

 The blocks are hand pieced or appliqued.
 I then quilted it free-motion the past couple of weeks on my Handi Quilter.
I just love the colours...

Hopefully next week I have something else to post...
I still have so many more quilt tops to finish.
