Another one of my quilt patterns and how it started!

It all started with these little kitty pitchers in my guest room - all were gifts!! I kept looking at them and you can see what happened next! 
A cross stitch design depicting my little pitchers.
Then came a needlepoint canvas! Then a quilt, then another quilt  - only this time I used the method of Broderie Perse for the flowers!
This is the quilt with the technique of Broderie Perse Flowers. That simply means that I found a large flower print, cut the flowers out and appliqued them on my quilt. This was a method used in the middle 1800's when printed chintz fabrics were used to applique on squares.
Let me know what you think!


  1. What lovely pitchers!! It is really interesting to see how your designs evolved.

  2. Those are gorgeous designs and blue and yellow are wonderful together!
