Mixer

This quilt is what I call a "mixer" because I have incorporated the blocks from one of my favorite authors.
Bea Oglesby is fantastic quilter, designer and author of several applique' books. I looked through the books, chose what I loved the most then began gathering fabrics from my stash. And I must say that choosing fabrics was just as much fun as the actual making of each block and this is a great way to get rid of use up some of that fabric.  As I found the fabrics I placed them in clear sleeves along with a photo-copy of the block I wanted to make. All of this was kept in a 3 ring binder. For once I was organized..... LOL
One the blocks were made, then came deciding how to put the quilt together. I was looking in a quilting magazine (can't remember which one) and saw an Attic Window article...... lightbulb moment!!!  I really love how this turned out.

Measures 64 by 64.

It is beautiful Rhonda. Are the flowers appliqued or did you use the embroidery machine?

PERFECT way to set those blocks! Stroke of genius, I'd say!

The flowers are beautiful and the attic windows frame them wonderfully.
"Flowers in the Attic", although there is a book named that already!

It's gorgeous, Rhonda - my favourite block is the red trillium! White trilliums are Ontario's provincial flower - the red ones are rarer, and it's always a bit special to find a red one in the forest during spring walks :)

I love your 3 ring binder organizational idea - I might borrow it --- I have so many plans in my mind but when it comes time to git 'r done, I forget what I was planning to do, lol!

;-}

Don't count the days, make the days count!
