Spring Garden Quilt

India

If you read my previous post, I wrote about my first quilt competition which - during the competition time frame (dec-April) - I was not allowed to disclose what I was making in any online social network - now I can show you.

Since the theme was the joy of flowers, so I made this with spring in Assam (my adopted homeland) in mind. 

More pictures on the making process can be viewed HERE and HERE 



I love Seminole and finally had a chance to use it as a border. making traditional quilt blocks using Indian mulmul fabrics was a challenge. I have to repeat many blocks cos the size keeps changing after squaring. But it's all worth the result.
I did FMQ in most parts of the quilt and tried decorative stitches in one border. 


The applique leaves were done by machine since the RULE said there should be very minimum handwork. The event was sponsored by Husqvarna Viking, Pfaff, and Handi Quilter, so I guess they wanted to show more of machine work.

I hope you enjoy your visit! 

That's all for now

Happy Quilting

Until then,
