Patricia's Pansies is what I have decided to call Mum's quilt. I am so pleased with it. Last year Mum had sent me the pansy fabric and co-ordinating solid (which had been in my Auntie's stash for unknown projects) and I knew straight away that I wanted to make her a quilt with them so it holds a bit of sentimental value right from the start. I thought about it for ages and wasn't sure the best way to use the fabrics....some were fat quarters others where about 30cm pieces. I finally came up with using the churn dash block to make the most of the pansy fabric.
I then decided to use a stitchery for the centre and found this Bronwyn Hayes design in one of her books that is sitting in my cupboard...I just enlarged it
Co-ordinated it with some Lynette Anderson "Summertime Friends" fabrics and we have a finish. The quilting came together well and I am pleased to say that my Free Motion Quilting is improving heaps.
The only thing left to do now is write on the label and pack it in the suitcase.
