New applique project

This is my latest applique project that I'm working on. Yep, another new project! :o)

All of those leaves are from my green scrap bin and I have already seen a reduction ... the cover closes quite easily now.

The pattern is from Tea In The Garden by Cynthia Tomaszewski and I fell in love with the pattern first time I saw it. This will be a good project to work on during the summer months. The quilt will be queen size, so there are lots and lots of applique to do.

The pattern was changed slightly. In the book, there is a 16-patch that has been replaced with a 9-patch block and all the blocks and sashings were increased in size so that I could make the quilt into queen size.

Have a great day!

A very nice pattern and your applique great. At first I thought they must be small blocks until I saw it on your design wall on the prior post. This is going to be one terrific quilt!

The background of tiny flowers is just perfect for your applique flowers. A sweet and delightful quilt.

You've got a great scrap bin, but I knew that based on that heart down below with a Jan Mullen paisley!
