Arlene sent this quilt. How amazing is this?
It’s all needle turn applique….yes all done by hand. My pictures don’t give her work justice. I was so captured by the brilliant colored batiks..so pure and powerful against the light colored background.
The size of the center blocks are not typical giving it a more modern feel….but still very fresh and beautiful like fresh cut flowers.
I quilted charisma curls and just enough accent in the flowers to tack them down. Continuous curves in the small square border..and the outer border I filled in with leaves & vines to break up the designs & create more texture.
I am not sure what the real name of the pattern is….I am sure it would make a great BOM…and maybe a few of you already know teh name. I have never seen this pattern before..but it’s not one I will forget. 🙂
Thanks Arlene! It was a pleasure working with you!
