FINI! DONE! BRAVO!
I started this quilt in January of 2017 as a part of a Log Cabin Quilt along online.
I have always loved Kim Diehl and this is her pattern from one of the 5 books I own.
I easily got my blocks done in time, but wanted to do the applique by hand.
There are 53 of those little circles which I used Karen Kay Buckley's circles. I also used Kim Diehl's paper for making templates.
The quilt was started from my collection of Thimbleberries fabrics. I love their rich colors. But I did add some pinks and purples and blues ( which I seem to use a lot).
Here is the back which was quilted by Julia Rockwell who no lives up in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.
She does exquisite work . The center is an all over design. The first border is a small 1/4 inch lines. And the border is echoed.
The back is just a tone on tone black. This shows more of the applique which took me 4 months to lay out and then stitch around. I am proud of my work on this one.
