Flowers in Paris

Not sure how to get started in all this again, so guess I'll just start writing.

A friend of mine came up to me the other day and said, "do you know it has been one year that you have posted anything on your blog".  Actually, I didn't realize it had been so long or that anyone was paying attention.  It has been a trying year with illness in the family....but very happy to say we are on the road to recovery.

It's not that I stopped sewing, I have been working on some UFO's (un-finished objects), some embroidery, and other odds and ends.  I will post pictures at a later date of those finished projects.

Flowers in Paris
Today, I thought I would start posting with this quilt that I just finished this morning.

This was a fun quilt to work on.  The pattern is called French Country designed by Andrea Gillingham & Debra Haigh of Serendipity Designs.  The fabrics I used are American Jane by Moda.

The flowers are raw edge appliqué, set on point, with a pieced inner border and finished with a mitered border.  This may have been my first attempt at a mitered border..had to watch a lot of tutorials on U-Tube.

Anyway, glad it's done.  Must say, not the best picture.
I named it: Flowers in Paris
Pieced by me, Pam O
Machine quilted by: Sue Salinger.

Warm hugs,
Pam O.
