It was October 2013 when I started this quilt. It was designed by Deborah Kemball and the fabric is Oakshott

I started this quilt as I was hopeless at needle turned appliqué, and I thought as this was a BOM I would have a whole month to do each block. Also, if after a year I had not conquered needle turned appliqué I never would. :0))
It did take me 18 months and I reckon I have just about conquered it.!!!
I needed to get back to my sewing machine, so this week I have been playing with Reverse appliqué
You cut out your design with a scalpel on a 15" block and then you have a negative and a positive. The negative needs backing underneath, and the positive is stitched on to a plain 15"block, so you get two for the price of one which is fun and quick to make.
I have made a quilt similar to this before so thought I would update it.
I know Mothers day has gone but I was so thrilled with this card from my daughter that I thought I must show it off to everyone.

Since finishing the Floral Impressions quilt, I feel as if my strings have been cut and have just flopped down in the chair at night and done nothing, not even my knitting.
After all, I think I need a rest.
Keep safe and keep stitching...................Doti...
