This is a quilt that I made for my beautiful friend Grace, for her birthday. It is a gumnut wreath made with “Under the Australian Sun” fabric by Australian Designer Leesa Chandler (www.chandlerscottage.com). The wreath is machine appliqued, with hand embroidered flowers. I chose to hand quilt using perle cotton.
It was a pleasure to make this quilt with an Australian theme. It allowed me to practice machine applique skills. I quilted lots of love hearts and lines to highlight the wreath. It was fun and I am delighted with the result.
It has been a long time in the making and soon to be delivered to my friend.
Hope you are having a great day! Happy sewing.
