"Forever Spring"

I finished this beauty last week, and it went back to Wendy just in time for some of her family to see who will be visiting at the end of this month. It is a design by Trish Ostwald called "Forever Spring" and was in APQ Vol 10 No 12.

It is quilted with a combination of freehand and statler patterns. The centre of the pieced block has a design called Dragonfly Rose, with the triangles around it done using a Garden Bunnies p2p (2640) by One Song Needle Arts. The green borders and thin floral borders are just ditched.

The serpentine feather next to the vine in the alternate vertical rows was done freehand, and the vine was ditched too.

The very outside border (of which there appears to be no pics - slack, sorry) was done with a Welsh cable on the statler.

I had a little time to do something for myself, and this pretty pink cot quilt was the result. NO, there is no news there....thank goodness, I'm too old to go down that track again....but I have listed it for sale on my etsy shop
