Applique Bird Quilt.

Bev Bannard  has made her quilt with inspiration from Irene Blanck's pattern.   Bev loves cross-hatching in her quilts so I have quilted the central panel with quite tight cross-hatching and complimented that with a larger cross behind the applique flowers.  The final border has feathers winding around the delicate hexagon blocks.  This is a lovely quilt and I really enjoyed working on it.

Applique Basket Quilt

Deirdre Farrar has made this gorgeous quilt - all hand pieced.  The fabric is from a range called 'Wuthering Heights' and the pattern and fabric were all put together in a cute basket.  I have quilted the central panel with flowing feathers and a tight circular pattern.  The rest of the quilt had alternating pink blocks - that I quilted a feathered wreath with pebbles, and the pieced blue and cream blocks that were quilted with a feather wreath, double wavy lines and the heart design that I repeated around the central block.
