This is my Favourite quilt from 2012. I entered it in a contest over at Quiltinggallery.com. There's so many lovely quilts entered in this contest. If your interested in voting you can vote for 4 quilts this month. You can vote here. My quilt Summer Romance was a Iron Quilter Challenge that wasn't finished until six months after the challenge closed. Sometimes a gal can get in over her head! However I was glad I took my time and finished.
This center design is from Applique Quilts by Craftworld books. Its called the 65 Roses quilt. The design was to be enlarged 200% but I choose to leave it as printed in the book and doing the math to make the little rosebuds fit. I also reworked the corner motifs, thus not having 65 roses. The little birds in this quilt were designed by Wendy Sheppard over at Ivory Springs. I altered the pattern a bit to frame the heart, its also in the border.
Until next time "Quilt out of your Comfort Zone!"
