LADY'S GARDEN CLUB AND SEWING CIRCLE FLIMSY

I recently completed the applique for "Lady's Garden Club and Sewing Circle".  It is to the stage of needing to be quilted.

The pattern I used is by Linda Brannock and is found in "Miss Jump's Farewell :Cotton and Wool".  I like the muted background created with rectangles.  The applique was not hard to do.  I used wool for the baskets and lady's shoes.  The rest is cotton.

Take time to sew today.  I know I will be.

  26. I made this quilt also, seem to remember something being the wrong size in the pattern. My first attempt at appliqué, I really like the finished quilt.
