Flowers in Winter - Quilt Festival Entry




Amy is hosting another Bloggers Quilt Festival. What fun it is. Head on over to see what beautiful quilts there are.  This is the second of my quilts that I am entering.


 I made this for my second son and his bride for a wedding present.  They were married last July, but as you can see I didn't get it finished until winter.  It's filled with trapunto and applique.  It was very fun to do.
Here you can see some of the applique I was doing while it was still summer.


And now pics of the finished quilt in winter.


 Sarah's mother really helped me with the colors.  She kept me to the blue for flowers and leaves instead of adding green and other flower colors.  I'm really glad she did that.  It broke the box in my head and the quilt is much nicer because of that.





 It does look like a  quilt meant for winter, doesn't it?

  2. It looks like a quilt for a happy winter. Something to brighten the days. The applique is beautiful, and I agree that the blue leaves were a great choice. They would have broken a box in my head too!

  4. My favorite. Inspirational. I would like to try a simpler version. I am probably not ready for trapunto yet. Everything is lovely about this quilt.
