Yellow applique quilt

 Just because blogging gives me an opportunity for lots of pictures (and words) to show you, I decided to post again after quite a while. I kind of missed, I hope you to!

 It took me long before this yellow quilt was finally finished...but last week I did!!!

These are the initials of 2 of my dogs who are no longer with us, but always give us so many good memories! Both, Goofie and Buffy, were wired hair dachshunds.

 A squirrel on the left

 and one on the right, made out of fabric with aboriginal prints.

 My first attempt of broderie perse with this stitch (I did it before here but used a herringbone stitch making the letter A and the geranium in the other quilt) I just gave it a go and use whatever I had in my drawers.

 lots of little stitches, but fun to do.

 This shape doesn't have 6 or 8 pieces but 7! Strange isn't it?

 A little detail of the border fabric. It is a heavier fabric compared to the rest of the fabrics.  I bought this as an old piece of curtain at an antique market, long before I even started this quilt.

I loved making all the applique, yo-yo's, mini hexagons and broderie persé!!!
Margaret Sampson-George helped me pick the yellow background, which I love! I already had a lot of appliqué and EPP shapes lying around, but after attending one of her workshops it came all together in one quilt.

I love the fussy cutting you did for your rabbit it is spectacular! I did Sarah Fielke's Down the Rabbit Hole last year and always love that motif.

Your quilt is lovely the yellow is perfect!

Wat een leuke quilt. En mooi die gele achtergrond stof. en dat zevenbladige bloemetje vind ik heel erg leuk, niet alleen de stof maar ook dat er zeven blaadjes zijn.
