boho patchwork quilt {progress pics}

  • I have been making steady progress with my *'boho patchwork' quilt and am enjoying seeing how this restful pale palette develops. This quilt project is part of my 'using up the stash' mission, and I'm using a few different Art Gallery fabrics and other favourites that I've collected over the past year. It's great how they all mix up together beautifully along with my assorted low volume fabrics. 
  • Still trying to master the embroidery, it's a new thing for me. I'm doing lots of french knots, free form daisies and simple back stitch.
  • The latest pattern is a traditional one but reworked into fresh & new fabrics. There are 10 'mod tulip' blocks, only nine more to make.
  • *Anthologie Quilt is a sampler quiltalong happening over here at barijquiltalong and here at SouthernCharmQuilts with Melanie. Loving the idea of adding lots of lovely extra touches like collage, crochet lace and sashiko, giving it a little boho flair. And check out these wonderful IG links too (thanx Julie!) for more textile art ideas - bohosal bearsville50 #textilecollage #rawedgeapplique.

Wishing you all a very . . .

    The embroidered flowers and French knots set off the flower beautifully!

  7. Very pretty! Love the pale background with the pops of floral highlights. Enjoy your summer holiday time. (I still stumble over thinking it's summer then when we've just hit our coldest temps of the winter so far!)

  8. I think the embroidery you are doing looks wonderful. It looks stunning on the blocks.

  9. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas day Linda! I'm only just catching with blogs and I love what you're doing with the Anthologie Quilt. Wishing you a very happy New Year!

  10. I hope you had a lovely Christmas and are enjoying your summer break. I love where this project is headed and look forward to seeing more of it (and your quilting in general) next year.
