Latest Wool Applique Project

Pat, over at Silver Thimble Quilt Co. is one of the most creative people that I know.  She designs quilts, table toppers, tote bags, writes books, and is our fearless Thimble leader, and is a wonderful friend.  Last year I teamed up with her to put together a wool kit for her pattern Snowbound, it was a tremendous success.  I wanted to use some of my wools in another pattern of hers and decided on Glory Garden.   I am stepping out of my box and using really bright colors of wool. 

I decided on a pale blue and white stripe for the background and really bright colors for the flowers and the stems. So far I have just pinned the pieces down and have them ready to stitch down.  Can't wait to see how this looks. ( as you look at the pattern above, this is the next to the last row with the basket in the middle)  Check out Pat's website for more info on her patterns.
