The colours in these photos are not the best.
One being hand embroidery. I am not a hand sewer and this took a bit of procrastinating on my part. It is good sometimes to get out of the square that you work in. My passion is free machine embroidery. Once I came up with a theme the designs did come. I would draw one then embroider it. I had 'Shakespears Flowers' as the main fabric. The embroiders fitted in with this theme.

I also have this fabric in a butter colourway and am doing another version of this quilt using the lovely 3" panels that is part of the range. I have not finished this as yet. This photo is put together in Photoshop to give you a bit of an idea. The pink and sage is not as dark as shown here.
One of the other requests made on the last cruise was foundation piecing. I have Incorporated six foundation pieced blocks in this quilt. The fabric is Michelle Hill's 'Morris Meadows'. I love the rich colours in these fabrics. The colours are totally different to the 'Shakespear Flowers' fabric. I have this in a black and pink colourway as well.
Fussy cutting also goes well with this quilt design. This version of the quilt is using 'Bouquet Gallery' which has a wide boarder fabric. All the fabric in this quilt come from this range.
Fabric with 6" panels also work well with this design.This quilt has 6" flower panels with little verses.
I am putting together a bright quilt using 6" cat panels. This is the centre only still has to have the borders added.
This pattern can work with a wide range of fabrics. Blocks could also be machined embroidered. I have a limited number of kits for all of these versions. However, I will be providing a fabric list for those who would like to use fabric from their stash or to use something different. If you want any further information on these please email me.
Hopefully I will have all these quilted before the cruise.
