Blackberries

This quilt design has many hidden opportunities to show off your skill. Simple machine applique makes a scalloped background. There are bias tape branches to stitch. The leaves and blossoms are cut in class with a Silhouette Cameo and ready to machine stitch. Optional: look at the sample quilts and decide if you will bead your berries or birds. You may wish to make cherries and blossoms instead of blackberries.

Geraniums

Geraniums-blue-2Sometimes my quilt ideas evolve and include the latest amazing fabrics. The interesting fabrics used in these 2 quilts come from Northcott. Which colorway do you like best? My favorite is the one with the copper bowl. The deep orange to lemon yellow fabric is an ombre as well as the fabric that made all the leaves. Find the pattern here. The appliqué shapes including the doily were cut using my Silhouette CAMEO. The petals of the geraniums were sprayed withTerial Magic and dried over marbles to give them shape. I did all the quilting myself using my Bernina. Find the pattern for the Geraniums in Blue here:
