Berries and Blossoms Quilt Pattern

Berries and Blossoms Quilt was made approx three years ago now, I remember having a deadline line on this quilt and the quilting seemed to have a life of its own stretching out the time it took to finish it meaning many late nights.

I guess after pushing myself to the limits with the quilting, the joy of finishing the quilt had been diminished...... But looking at this quilt in the morning light this morning I have fallen completely in love with it all over again. Looking at the quilt the first thing that I see is the way the fabrics work so beautifully together. I only had a small piece of the green leaf fabric and it was just enough...........any mistakes and it would not have worked.

The quilting was done randomly with 100 per cent cotton batting, I used YLI silk thread top and bobbin. I love the subtle texture that has been created with the quilting, even with a cotton batting.

Looking back now I can see that the random style not only of the quilting but the random placement of the background fabrics behind the applique design shows the design style and path of my more recent quilts. Always Interesting to look back !

Adding the borders, it always amazes me when the next step is added, how the choices of fabric can change the look of the quilt. This is true for the first inner border, although it is only a small addition it is a game-changer. The applique adds another dimension. Read more about the borders and techniques............
