Something New

The buds on my Lily have opened to these spectacular flowers. They are 8" across and the stemens are the green of the stem.

I joined the BOM from Canton Village Quilt Works. The button on the left should take you there. Each month a different blog has the pattern but they have all used the same 5 fabrics. I had a  'layer cake' of the Rounneries fabric and decided to use them. These are the first 2 blocks.

I bought this pattern and have started making it. There is a lot of reverse applique which I have only ever done a little of but I have to say it is very quick and I'm enjoying the change.

The other quilt pattern I want to make is this one, I found it in an old Australian AP&Q. Look at the size of those stems! The quilt pattern was done by Kate Knight and she has told me the flower centres and the vases were yellow but have faded. I will be making mine with a yellow fabric. I have ordered Bella Solid Ivory for the background and I'm awaiting it's arrival.

Those are beautiful quilts to make. I need to decide on what I want to make for my new bed, something simpler and I want to use the material Barbara sent me.

Your lily is magnificent, Dorothy!

I love your Rouenneries blocks. That whole line of fabric is gorgeous.

The Antique Prairie Rose quilt is beautiful! I look forward to watching your progress with this one! :)

Oh my Dorothy, no wonder I haven't heard from you, look what you are up to. I love both patterns, I would actually love getting out of my box and make a quilt like the Antique Prairie Rose. I have never stitched using the reverse applique method, you have to let us know how you like it, pros and cons. Off to check out your other
