Flower Trellis Quilt in Quiltmania Magazine # 94 ( March - April 2013)
This is a quilt I did in early 2000 using red/green & white reproduction fabrics. I used a number of different red fabrics for the flowers and buds, I can"t remember what the collection was called though, they were lovely reds. The background is a shirting fabric and the green was one of those Baltimore greens.
The applique shapes are big, so they fill up the space pretty quickly. This was one of my first attempts at designing a quilt and I think the strips of diamonds were done on the sewing machine. Since I can't piece well on the machine, the quilt wasn't exactly straight!
I think this quilt would be great using all different colour flowers, buds and different green fabrics for the leaves. If you keep the long narrow strips a constant, then you'll be able to use the scraps for the diamonds.
An easy quilt to do! Cheers, K
PS. I don't know who Blueberries is! The article says " Kim McLean for Blueberries"
