This is my latest finished customer quilt...yes, another die-cut flower quilt! This one is in red and cream/white. The quilt-maker is another student of Martha Armstrong of Zebulon, NC, who has brought me several of these types of quilts with appliques from the Big Shot die-cut machine.
I like the crisp color combination, which looks fresh and clean, although the prints are somewhat old-fashioned floral designs.
These require 189 trips around the flower shapes to attach them to the quilt, as they are just basted on. Sometimes the little petal edges flap up when you are progressing from circle to circle, so I quilt basically with my right arm while my left hand is smoothing the petals.
Good bicep exercise, but I am so ready to NOT do another one for awhile! The backing was a red fabric with white swirls, and again, I felt like the lines of quilting competed somewhat with the lines on the fabric.
