'Bits and Pieces'

Whilst watching  Linda Pumphrey on Show No 2212 back last summer I was fascinated by her story of the block designs shown on the reverse of the Mountain Mist wrappers.  I immediately fell in love with the block pattern being used for the demonstration and decided to use it as the basis for a new quilt, which I have just finished.

The block I had chosen had been originally an applique pattern but as I usually make hand quilted wholecloth quilts, I decided to use the one applique shape to make my main design, adding additional pieces of lace, twisted cord for the flowers and the odd bead here and there.  I started with the initial square on point in the middle and built up the design as I went along.

I used silk dupion and a Liberty Tana Lawn for the main applique pieces.  The main quilting design is backstitch quilted and painted in parts with additional Colonial knots around some of the edgings.

Thank you TQS for giving me such inspiration for this quilt and for the pleasure I get watching all the fascinating Shows you make.
