My Whimsical Quilt Garden by Piece O'Cake Designs, is a wonderful pattern! Earlier this year I was lucky enough to team up with Sonja Marek, to complete this quilt. Sonja did all the hard work, all the beautiful Applique. I was given the honour of quilting the quilt.
The hardest part was deciding what to do. Since it was all hand appliqued I wanted it to look somewhat traditional. I outlined the applique and then did a ribbon in the sashing. Then came the border.
The border was plain white muslin with wonderful polka dots appliqued. I decided to outline the polka dots, and add more dots to the fabric with the quilting. Since the centre of the quilt had a lot of quilting, I needed to balance it with a lot of quilting in the border.
The quilt is hanging in a spot at Katja's that makes it hard to get a great picture, so this is the best I could do. This quilt has to be my favourite quilt that I have had the pleasure to work on this year!

Very, very nice! Love the circles on the border!ReplyDelete
I am working on this quilt now, but it pales in comparison to this beautiful work. I am hand piecing it but wish I had done the machine piecing as well. I just don't have the skills to do it justice, Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
