Two more Sashiko and Appliqué blocks completed!


Anthurium

Plumeria

the Plumeria block was a challenge!
I did not like the way the pattern had me do the pieces
so I ripped it all out and designed my own
Plumeria flower … the challenge was
the petals overlapped
so my first flow center did not come out so hot
but with a little pressing and a few 
strategically place beads I think it will be ok!

 I've seen this quilt done before,
but when you get up close it really sparkles

The feathered quilting really made the quilt


And I was SO happy my Quilty Gal Pal
