Berries and Blossoms

I have had this applique quilt on the go for a while now. I have got a little stuck with it's progress, I need to kick start myself along with it as the top is almost finished. Only three more borders to applique. And all those circles to make ................ 120 more to go. I started with these fabrics. Pulled from my stash, I have been wanting to use these reproduction fabrics I have been collecting. Love that purple !!! Berries and Blossoms FabricsThis is the first flower and I'm loving it. Berries and Blossoms FlowerThis is the first block, pleased so far. But oooh a lot of circles. Berries and Blossoms BlockA  rough picture of the four blocks together, I have been wanting to make a four block applique quilt for sometime now. I think it may need some kind of border ? Berries and Blossoms four blocksYou can just see in the next picture the diamond border I have put around the four centre blocks. Now for the applique border, I have one corner stitched down so far. Berries and Blossoms Applique Border Berries and Blossoms Applique Border Now I need to get on a finish the other three corners. I am also planning an edge around the quilt to finish it. My favorite fabric so far is that green and brown print in the leaves. Amazing how the fabrics you are not so keen on end up making such a difference. Which is your favorite fabric ? Happy Stitching Sharon

    Hi Sharon, Love the quilt you are making. I love the look of lots of circles.. You know for some reason your blog doesn’t update on my blog. The last one i have on there is 6 days ago. Not sure why. Linda

    Hi Linda
    Oh gosh I am not sure either, I am just getting into the grove of blogging. Maybe someone out there in blog land can help us with the answer ? Glad you like my quilt, getting a little tired of making circles.
