Happy St. David's Day!

Finished (well, almost) in time for St. David's Day, the Welsh daffodil appliqué, a reworking of the daffodil panel on the Queen's Diamond Jubilee quilt.  The leaf on the right is simpler, as planned, and the bud is a touch thinner and drooping a bit more than the original, which wasn't planned.  The flower doesn't look totally right yet because the petals need to be outlined to show them radiating from the centre, but I will add that in as part of the quilting.

Also, the butterfly is missing.  For the time being it will have to make do with a paper cutout.  I am still debating exactly where to place it.

I had forgotten how little time these appliqués take.  St. Patrick's Day is on the horizon.  At this rate I should have the shamrock panel reworked by then... but I have totally run out of the right shade of green.

Hello to Josie, the latest follower - thank you for joining!

  1. Doing the accent lines for the petals during the quilting will be perfect. :)
