It is so gratifying when someone takes my design and takes it even further.
My version also had machine pieced blocks in the centre but whereas my appliqué border was all machine stitched, Sharon has spent many, many hours working her floral border by hand. It is absolutely stunning.
The design for the border was inspired by a Baltimore appliqué quilt. I loved the roses and profusion of flowers and leaves.
The block is a classic pieced Block called Queen Victoria’s crown.
