I’m belatedly popping in here to share with you my Flower Power Quilt which featured in Love Patchwork and Quilting Issue 22. It is by far the biggest quilt I have ever made* and I have to confess scared me rigid in case I couldn’t quilt it successfully. But, despite my worries, it did work, phew! There’s a coordinating cushion too which was a much simpler task. I used an interfacing method to make the circular flowers and orange peel leaf shapes and straight-forward bondaweb for the stems – it is simple to make and just becomes a little tricky because of the sheer size……….it could very easily be scaled down to something more manageable!
* Flower Power is now draped over our extra big Ikea King Size bed………it is such a treat** to finally have a quilt made by me on our bed
** although it won’t be left on the bed tonight as it is warm** at last, woohoo!
***we had a brief but dramatic thunderstorm this afternoon which had a rather devastating effect on Islay – she came off the school bus in floods of tears, verging on hysterics, because of the lightning and thunder. We don’t really get electric storms here in Scotland and I don’t think she has experienced one before. Poor girl.
