As promised I want to share my latest applique project with you.
I've been enamored with circles and mandala designs for some time now. I made a large quilt which was one huge mandala a few years ago and always wanted to make another. Lots of circles show up in my applique projects - I have 2 neat set of circle templates and even a real draftsman's compass for designing!
This new quilt is comprised of nine circle or mandala blocks, each one a different wildflower or plant which I have collected and dried or studied. It is entirely applique; the only piecing is of the circle borders.
The block pictured here is "Ferns and Fiddleheads" and also pictured are the dried ferns which I used for design and inspiration.
Speaking of plants: Leo my kitty loves to sun himself in the now empty deck planter. "Snooze where you are planted" is what he says.
