Wheeping Cherry and My Fantasy Garden Quilt

This was by far the toughest block to do. I made a couple different sets of flowers with different colours and finally decided on these and I guess you could say that I "wept" over this one. It is important to remind myself to always look at the whole picture and not just zoom in on one block.


So here it is …. ALL the blocks together at last! Finally, I am pleased with my quilt. Hope you like it, too! This quilt was a lot of fun to do and the technique was so totally different for me. Mind you, by the time I finished this quilt yesterday, it did take me until this morning to love it again! Guess I had been putting way too much time on it trying to finish.

I started working on this quilt in Jan. 2005 and it was entered in my Guild’s UFO Challenge. So glad to be able to cross one more UFO off that list. :o)

I added emblishments to my Fuschia Block. Two ladies gave me tips and I thank them for helping me out. Had a bit of brain freeze when it came to finishing this block off. Atet at http://quiltincorn.blogspot.com/ and Paula, The Quilter at http://thequilter.blogspot.com/ came to my aid.

Have a great day!

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Now remember if you get tired of it I'm sure there would be plenty lined up to relieve you of it. I'm sure you must be pleased to have it finished and up on your wall.

Well done. Great to see it on the wall. Do you have a favourite block...either because of the technique or the way it looks completed?

Wow! Ok, now that it is finished, all I can say is wow! Let me also say if you tire of this one I CAN adopt stray quilts.

Thanks for the mention for the suggestion -- I am nothing if not opinionated!
