"The Cheerful Quilt!"
I have been working on these applique borders, for the Cheerful quilt!!
This quilt began as a quilt-as-you-go quilt that I had hatched in my mind, and ended up stuffed in the closet in a wad of disgust. Recently, however! This quilt begged to come out and be something else!! So I took all the hand quilting out (I know, perish the thought, right?), and put the blocks all together. This is an old block pattern, of which I do not know the name, but I know you will! And then??
The quilt just begged for an applique borders!! All right, ALL RIGHT!! You may have applique borders!! (just for you, silly cheerful quilt!)
And it just kind of snowballed from there.
So here is where I am, so far. I was fortunate enough to go to Hawaii several years ago, and loved the Plumeria flowers...mostly pink with yellow centers. All of the Plumeria flowers had five petals, however...so these are Plumeria flowers in multiple colors!!
