Leanne Finishes Another Beautiful Quilt
The lovely Leanne has done it again!
After finishing her "Rosings" last week, she completed her fantastic "Ashbourne Mill" today.
Leanne's quilt is made in the wonderful colour scheme of green and purple.
This quilt combines several techniques including paper foundation piecing of the flying geese in varying sizes, template work,for the windmill blade shapes and hand appliqué for the pumpkin seed shapes. The manipulation of the two background fabrics also adds to the drama of the quilt by forming a secondary pattern.
Well done, Leanne. You are on a roll!
Would you believe, Leanne then went on to work on her "Victoria" quilt. This was one of the first quilt designs I taught so it has been put away for a while but in the interests of finishing, it too is almost complete. Leanne's appliqué is lovely.
Here is the centre appliqué medallion. It includes several three dimensional Baltimore appliqué techniques including double ruched roses, heart monitor rushing, Suffolk puff flowers , lined leaves and blue bells with fringed stamens.
