I am very fortunate to belong to a talented group of hand-appliquers who are as obsessed as I am. We get together the third Sunday of every month and enjoy stitching together and eating together. Usually, we stitch for a couple of hours, then we stop for lunch, then we stitch some more. We choose a pretty ambitious project and everyone makes their own version of the quilt. Each quilt takes a year (or two!) to complete. Last year, we chose Aunt Millie’s Garden by Piece o’ Cake.
The quilt is finally finished (except for a binding and label). Rose Bell of Elite Quilting did an “over-the top outstanding” job of machine quilting Aunt Millie’s Garden. Here is a close up of the quilting.
