Description

This is "Mixed Flowers" by The Rabbit Factory.  I'm working on the centre medallion; I don't think that I will surround it with the blocks in the pattern.  At the moment, I'm leaning towards using it as a cushion rather than a quilt.  Fabrics from my ex-mail order business stock.  I honestly can't remember when I started this; it has been in a UFO pile for quite a while.  I will need to purchase some coloured threads to finish the blanket stitch appliqué.

Seshlaman It's a pretty pattern, isn't it. Thanks for your thoughts. smiley

Oh how I love applique flowers. This is gorgeous and I so want to copy it IF I could. Years ago I discovered folk art and not knowing how to appliques I instead painted it on furniture. Now some 40 years later I can actually contemplate trying it. Yours is an inspiration!

Terryt1955 I hadn't made the connection to folk art but of course! I'd love to learn to paint.

I do so love this. I think it would be great in wool applique as well, which is the applique I seem to be drawn to currently. The pillow idea is perfect! Beautiful workmanship.
