Australian Wildflowers Quilt
Young at Heart said they embroidered these blocks over a 2-year period. The quilt blocks were their vacation and "stay awake in front of the TV" handiwork. Some of the designs were from books that they bought, whilst they designed others from photographs after a trip through Central Australia. The early blocks were mostly candlewicked, but they became more adventurous as the quilt progressed. They were especially pleased with the results of the Grevillea and Waratah. The quilt is queen size, machine quilted on their Janome, all cotton with bamboo wadding.Continue to 4 of 10 below.
