…is another Quilter’s Treasure! Or so the saying goes…
Years and years ago Glynis had visions of making a Watercolour Quilt…where one flowery print bleeds into another! She painstakingly collected the flower fabrics…and even cut out the blocks…into big blocks and little blocks…then put the blocks into a container and forgot about it! Sounds familiar…? Yup, a lot of us have done this!
A few months ago Glynis cleaned out her sewing room and came across this flowery fabric…realized that she no longer wanted to make a Watercolour Quilt and so brought the blocks to Heritage. She offered the blocks to those quilters sitting at our table and WE all shook our heads so onto the Share Table it went! (If any of the Heritage Quilters want to get rid of anything it goes onto the Share Table where it is fair game for anyone who would like to put a donation into the Charity Tin.)
Well along came Joan, who bought the flowery fabric…she took the blocks home and worked her magic! Then she commissioned Hazel to quilt it. Imagine our SHOCK when Hazel unfolded their masterpiece!! Drop dead GORGEOUS!!
Joan kept the quilt simple and let the flowery fabric do all the talking! Now I’m not a flowery kind of person but I LOVED*LOVED*LOVED this quilt!
And Hazel’s flowery butterflies and circle quilting was the icing on the cake!!
If I felt sick seeing what I COULD have made, IMAGINE how Glynis was feeling…she also LOVED this quilt!!
It just takes someone else’s vision to create something that no one else could see!! Way to go Joan!
Seriously my pictures do not do this quilt justice!
With the shimmer of green throughout and the pops of colour here and there, it really DID look like a garden!
Oh…and the back…Joan used some left over blocks to create a whole new look! Stunning!
Can you guess who is starting to collect flowery fabrics? Who knew…?
Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Stitching!~P
