Finally my appliqué quilt is finished :-).
It started with a book from Gwen Marston. Her words about appliqué are straight from my heart ! She says that over the last years we added so much techniques which isn't necessary. I think she is right.
So I step 150 years back in time and I made my own pattern with paper and a scissor . I placed the pieces by eye. And I used my favorite needleturning technique.
I chose fresh colors. Grass green, red and I added a bit of pink and orange !
I was inspired to use the method they did in the 1800's .
Using this method described by Gwen and studying antique quilts I created my own applique quilt.
I saw in antique quilts that the borders can be different. I love that idea. So I played with the borders.
Most ladies in the past quilted through the appliqué patches. I thought to do the same. But I couldn't. Maybe next quilt :-)
Well here it is. I think it is a typical 'Lucy' quilt !
