The husband of the customer rejected 80 blocks! They were not exact enough!
This applique was a challenge. The customer had the ready quilt top sitting on a shelf for nearly 2 years. So already some parts were faded. The sun in New Zealand is not very polite to the fabric. And she also had hardly enough fabric for the backing. At the end I had just 2cm fabric left over. But the result of the quilting made the customer very happy.
For the side border I choose a floral design
For the geometric design I choose a continous line quilting
The design for the background is a McTavishing.
