This is a Stitch and Split Applique flower that a group of mine did an exchange with. I rarely do exchanges because I never seem to finish them. There usually are several different size blocks even when they're supposed to all be the same size. This was a good block to do for an exchange because it's made lager than needed and you are able to cut all to the same size.
Since the appliqued flowers and leaves are raw edge, I did my vine border raw edge as well. This quilt is for the wall. I love the happy colors! I machine quilted it in a variegated Superior Thread. Love the Superior Threads! I entered this quilt in the local county fair and they said that it should have been quilted in white to match the background. Silly, silly quilt police. If I wanted to quilt it in boring white, I would have! They just don't realize my love of color. I feel sorry that they just have tunnel vision. They strongly feel the rules should be obeyed. I do too when it comes to the law of the land. When it comes to quilts, it's whatever feels good to me!
