    Wink Finished William Morris Quilt

    Thanks to all of you who replied about how I should quilt this. As you can see I settled on free motion around each applique and small stippling in between. i am happy with the outcome as I have never done such a intensive applique quilt before and it will be a while before i see myself doing another, but you never know do you?
    Hope you like it too..
    The white strip on one side of this pic is sunshine, sorry about that...

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Beautiful. I see lots of hard work in that quilt. Did you make it for yourself?

    Wow, it's so beautiful! I'm especially impressed by the orange flowers with their rounded petals and pointy tips. So many small pieces in this work. You'll feel a flush of pride every time you look at it. And so you should. It's really gorgeous! The colors are jewel-like and scrumptious.
