It's finally finished; a first printing of my pattern for Flower Power. A little scary as "well, now what?" I don't exactly know. If I had thought that far, I never would have started it! I have self published this first round and only a dozen copies to begin with.
My Applique Group "pattern testers" are working on their test samples of this quilt and are quite diligent. I really appreciate their input. There is still room to make changes and additions.
I really enjoyed putting this together, with a lot of help from my sister Ellen. I can make a quilt and do applique in my sleep, but trying to write exactly how to do it is another story; it is at best very time consuming and I was constantly changing things. At least now I have an idea of what it takes to create a quilt pattern - or any pattern. Even writing a recipe would be a challenge when you think about it.
I was surprised and pleased to see that The National Quilting Association is using a photo of Flower Power's border as their website header. Flower Power was shown at the NQA quilt show last June and won Honorable Mention.
