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 !

Now that the holidays are well and truly over, and we have started the year 2020. I am back in my sewing room while the house is peacefully quiet, my process for starting the new year is to finish some of the quilts that did not get finished at the end of 2019. One of the quilts to finish is the Treasures in the scrap bin quilt from the sew along, and as I am working on it I would be like to share my thoughts with you.

Last night I had a wonderful impromptu visit from my lovely friend Anna she brought me the most beautiful bunch of flowers from her amazing garden. Such a special gift, I am truly blessed to have her as my friend. Which made me remember a block inspired by her Roses called Anna's Treasure from my Rambling Ways quilt.
