It should be there today and I think Suse is at work so I’ll show all of you. You must promise not to tell Suse though…
The whole thing, expertly held by my Pete.
Quilt details: 100% cotton fabrics used – blues and greens from Amy Butler daisy chain range, white linen, flowers from Kaffe Fasset fabric; wool batting for a little extra warmth in cold Victoria; approximately 150cm square.
Applique details: raw edge appliqued, tree modified from my previous Noah’s Ark design, flowers fussy cut around dots on fabric to create flower centre, circles (the same size as my kitchen glasses).
Quilting details: continuous feather flower on centre; feathers on four-patch border; wormy tear-drop shapes around circles, lines to follow stripes on outer border with corner feathers.
I’m uploading the photos in maximum size to flickr so you can see the details a little better. (Suse put photos of my lacy shawl on there yesterday, so I have seen it too)
Thank you SO much for this swap Suse. It has been wonderful to make something with such a purpose knowing that you were thousands of kilometres away putting a huge effort into making something for me.
This whole process has been fabulous fun.
