Spring in the City
I’ve completed the Yorkshire Rose Quilters’ Guild of Toronto President’s Challenge ahead of the deadline. I really enjoyed quilting and embellishing this piece.
This miniature quilt finishes at 12″x12″. I free-motion quilted densely in some areas, leaving other areas unquilted.
The large red flower at the top needed some embellishment. Red organza ribbon that had beautifully wrapped a gift was perfect. I gathered the ribbon and quilted it into place with a zig-zag stitch. The center of the flower was outlined with a row of yellow silk ribbon. It nicely finishes the edge and draws the eye to this focal point.
I added some hand dyed thread to the centre of the orange flower and quilted them into place.
The beginning of quilt started with this fabric: Always Blooming by Susy Pilgrim Waters. I can see so many more possibilities with this fabric.
I will be bringing Spring in the City to our next meeting for show and tell. How many of you are finished your President’s challenge?
