I am still trying to work through my not yet finished quilting projects. I drafted some applique flowers for what I am calling my 'Reproduction Home Quilt.' The main part of the quilt is made up of squares of reproduction fabrics with random sized muslin pieces stuck in for applique elements. The applique represents things that bring my house/home to mind. So far the appliques include a paw print (representing the dogs), snowflakes, a fall colored maple leaf, a lady bug, and these red impatien flowers (I always have red impatiens in my flower boxes in the summer.) The final block left will be a scene of the mountains across the valley from us. Once the mountains are done the quilt top will be done.
