New release week: blossom
Oh, where to begin with this project? The reason I say this is I started this project years ago. Yep, I said it years…that’s not like me, most of the time I finish one before I start another…yes you can gasp!! A quilt designer that “usually” only has a or 2 projects on the go, it’s possible. Anyway back to the quilt and not my habits!
Blossom was created because of the fabrics I had found. Fabrics that were larger scale and too beautiful to cut up into itty bitty pieces. So we left the pieces large. The I took inspiration from the one Joel Dewberry fabric in the quilt. The panel at the top of the quilt is just another extension of the fabrics I choose.
That is how I usually feel about applique on our quilts. That it is the enhancement, embellishments and extension of the fabrics. I know there are a lot of quilter’s out there that dislike applique, but it’s what makes our quilts stand out, it is what make our quilts unique. I love it! I will show you why in my next new release post. The fabric sets the mood but the applique is like the icing on the cake.
So here are a few more close up pictures of blossom. To show you the applique and the quilting. This quilt has a real Asisan feel.
Oh and I found a greatnew fabric collection that would be fabulous for this pattern. http://www.joeldewberry.com/ are you surprised? It’s gorgeous, all three colorways, check it out and let me know if you agree.
