Vines all around

Every flower about a house certifies to the refinement of somebody. Every vine climbing and blossoming tells of love and joy.
Robert G. Ingersoll

There are a few crocuses coming up and yesterday I saw a few daffodils. The season for flowers is just around the corner.Through the last wintry months I’ve been working on a few flowers to brighten up the room.

There were lots of good sized pieces left after completing the top.  So they went into the back.

Here are details of two of the flowers.  The background of the applique was one single piece of fabric that was variegated from light yellow to dark purple.

The piece was machine pieced and hand appliqued and hand quilted.

The quilt is 60×60.

Happy almost spring!

  1. Your flowers are exquisite. I see so many flower appliqués where the shapes are crude and primitive, but yours are delicate and elegant, and I am lost in admiration! A fitting harbinger for the northern hemisphere spring…

  2. The applique is gorgeous! What a great way to bring spring in a bit early.
