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 !

How cute is that. Warning ! they are addictive........
While sewing the flowers on the border of the Feathered Star Quilt, I thought it would be great to share my method
Here are the steps I used to complete the flower and stitch it in place.
For each flower shape, use freezer paper templates and iron the edges over the freezer paper. You can find more detailed instructions about this in my e-book Applique! Creating and Stitching here
There are two types of flowers in the border, I will start the Tutorials with the Pink and Red Daisy flowers.
