moving it forward







I've been catching up with a bit of neglected sewing today. I'm sewing along with Bari Melanie and making their Wild Bloom Quilt. It's a modern sampler with lots of lovely extra touches like collage, crochet lace and sashiko, giving it a little boho flair. For more details and all the quiltalong links pop over here at barijdesigns or here at southerncharmquilts.
So today I finished off the 8 background blocks for the floral collage and made up 2x flying geese sections. And this book Boho Embroidery from the library is full of little extra details that I think I could add too.

Linking up with Em's Scrapbag for 'moving it forward' here

  5. I like the soft cream background fabrics. Your appliqué flowers make a lovely
    splash and the flying geese and star block are perfect.
    This is different and looks great!

  8. Fantastic fabric combination in the first block - I could happily see a whole quilt in those colours. I also like your low volume strips a lot and they are a great setting for the floral additions.
