My Whimsical Garden
I wanted to learn how to applique better & found this quilt - My Whimsical Garden by Piece o'Cake in 2014. Using my stash I worked on it and finally finished it in 2016. I had entered it in the Gimli/Interlake Quilt Show in August 2016 and finished it 2 days before the show!
I machine pieced, hand appliqued, and free motion quilted the top (edging in the squares and pebbles in the border. I received 2nd place for People's Choice Award & $50 gift certificate at local quilt shop - very unexpected, but delightful!!
It measures 75" length x 65" width. It now hangs in our cottage in Hecla!
