    Victorian Pansy Basket

    Thanks bobbielinks It took me three or four months to applique, then another year and a bit to finish quilting, picking out relayering and requilting. After the third try, I am happy with the quilting result. It was my first attempt at hand applique and taught me so much.

    It is very pretty. Love pansies myself, and yours look so real. I particularly like your blue pansies. I like how you did the crosshatch on this quilt. Simple and elegant. Border is a lovely addition to this quilt. Thank you for showing us.

    Very, very pretty. Love pansies. They make me happy. They are such hardy little souls. The star quilt sizzles. So very lovely. Great job and don't you just learn something new everytime you sew?
