Lately I have been sorting through my pile of quilts and have come across some of my long lost treasures. I thought I would share some of my memories of making these lovely quilts, cushions and table runners with you.
First on the list is the Wreath cushion, made quite some time ago now. I loved making this cushion from start to finish. It was one of those projects where everything seemed to fall into place just the way I had imagined it.
The center flower has some of my most precious fabrics, the floral one being an all time favorite and I no longer have any left in my fabric collection. ( I wish I did )
I love, love, love brown, boring to some but I just can't live without it. So the leaves in this cushion are made with a beautiful floral brown fabric. Just perfect for the autumn weather we are currently having.
You can also see that I have a thing about circles, they seem to pop into all of my quilts and these ones are no exception.
I quilted this cushion with a fine silk thread in a echo fashion. Ooh I love silk thread too......
The pattern for the Wreath Cushion is available as a PDF download. You can find it here.

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.
