Blogger's Quilt Festival

I am once again participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival being organised by Amy of Amy's Creative Side from May 21 - 25.  The Blogger's Quilt Festival is an online quilt festival where bloggers from around the world showcase a quilt - once you have had a look here, head on over and take some time viewing the other wonderful quilts.

This time I have chosen to show a quilt I have recently completed for my customer Caroline.  Caroline's applique and piecing is just beautiful and incredibly accurate - the detail in the appliqued flowers is just fabulous.


I quilted Caroline's quilt with a formal feather border up to the applique. I have surrounded the applique in the border with a combination of feathers and McTavishing whilst the large setting triangles have been quilted with orange peel.  The sashing has been quilted with a feather design.




In the appliqued blocks I have quilted McTavishing and swirls.



I hope you have enjoyed Caroline's quilt - I had a great time quilting it.  Remember to head on over to see many of the other quilts in the Blogger's Quilt Festival.
