The quilt I am sharing with you today has been hand pieced by my customer Ann.  It is a sampler quilt, set with sashing and smaller eight-pointed star cornerstones, made in gorgeous greens, pinks and reds.  The colour scheme put me in mind of roses and, as a result, we decided to quilt Ann's quilt with an all-over design called Rosie by Jodi Beamish.

I am sure you will agree that this pattern has quilted up beautifully with the flowers standing out particularly well on the green sashing and border fabric while still allowing the individual blocks to shine.

This has been another wonderful quilt to work on - I hope you like the final result Ann and enjoy your quilt.


  1. Wow! Hand piecing is so inspiring. Beautifully quilted.


  2. I am embarking on my own hand pieced a whole new appreciation for the craft.

    The rose quilting works beautifully with this quilt.

  3. Gorgeous work Karen, I think I will get some Jodi Beamish Panto's

  4. She will love her quilt. It looks to me like strawberries on a field, and the flower-panto even enhances this impression

  5. Nice finish for a beautiful quilt.


I really appreciate your comments - they will appear shortly.
