      [QUOTE=Lynnanne;n892872][/QUOTE]

      Lynnanne, Thank you for posting your double wedding ring quilt. Looks like the fabric colors would work perfectly for Alex's Neutrals quilt. I often like bedquilts that are not art oriented.. Perfect for a more tranquil setting when going to bed. Did
      you quilt it it yourself? Nice work. And you have months 1 and 2 done for Garden Party Down Under. I like that your are
      putting some of your own ideas into it. I like the shape of your vines and the vase shapes in the corners. I always take
      peoples ideas and say where would I go with it. I think I would add an applique to the vase surface. Maybe a flower in one
      of the colors used in the center block. I like the half circle borders. I might add some hand embroidery or decorative stitch
      around the edge to give them a little more contrast to the background fabric. Did you learn any of Alex's hand embroidery
      when she was doing her Live Classes the past few months? You could do a different color embroidery floss stitch on each
      half circle. Maybe in a blanket stitch.Pull the colors already used in the blocks into the borders. For me, that would be fun. Just throwing things out there. It looks great just the way
      it is. Seems lately I have been getting into more embellishment. HelenW

        Helen thanks so much for your ideas. I did learn to embroider from Alex’s class and will use it on this quilt! The vases need some appliqué and embroidery as well. I like the neutrals quilt idea and will also make the quilt with the leftover fabric. By the way, my daughter loves your Garden Party quilt!

      Lynneanne, I know this picture of your quilt and Alex' s Neutral Blooms does not belong in this topic, but I figured you would see it
      here since you are doing the BOM. Look at the flowers on the outside border of Alex's quilt, if your son's girl friend likes flowers,
      appliquéing a few of them in the center of some of your wedding rings, might just look wonderful. Just more ideas that popped
      into my head. HelenW

        Since I didn’t have the pattern for the Dresden block I used embroidery.

              My blocks for Month3. The flowers are Wattle and the patchwork block, from a 1986 book by Deborah Brearley, is Corymbia ficifolia

              Block 3 done with hand applique, machine piecing. I am getting used to mixing all styles of fabric in my blocks. And, best of all, the Quilt Police are not knocking on my sewing room door.

                This is my block 3 replacing pieced 4 patch. For keeping her style here, I incorporated Irene's other designs. And this quilt was designed for the Quilt Show, I added its logo.
