|The antique feeling of this quilt fits right in with our white headboard.|
This pattern is simply a nine patch block alternating with an hour glass block. The colors in my hour glass are consistent throughout: a tiny floral and a cream colored solid. The cream colored solid is also used in each nine patch block.
|As usual, the quilt colors are complimented by the tapestry over our bed.|

This is the first quilt that I ever put an appliqued border on, and I think it took me more time to make the border than the entire center of the quilt. There are 40 flowers in total in the border. Each one took me about an hour and a half to two hours to machine applique. Each flower has eight pieces in it. For me, this is quite elaborate. I used a heavy thread called Jeans Stitch by YLI which makes my blanket stitch applique really stand out.
|Pretty little flowers all in a row.|
