Clematis Quilt Pattern

Today I was looking at my Climbing Clematis quilt. This quilt was originally made for a beginner's class in color wash applique. The background is made up with a color wash of squares and clematis flowers are appliqued on top. It's fun and easy to make.

If you have been following my blog posts you will already know that I'm an applique lover. I love creating applique because it is different than anyone else's applique since I design from scratch. My designs are usually based on photos I take so I know no one else will have the same.

You can only imagine how thrilled I was when I discovered one of my applique patterns on the cover of Clotilde's Catalog for their February 2011 issue. I almost feel famous <grin> Today I discovered my "Array of Color" applique pattern featured on Clotilde's website and on their catalog cover.

The Stitching.

One of the things I love about quilting is the actual stitching or quilting used to enhanced the design. Not everyone enjoys this process, but I certainly do. Using the sewing machine and various stitches (I have two favorite), I add coloring through thread work and extra detail with quilting stitches.

One of my projects last year was to recreate any one of my quilt pattern designs. My choice was "A Freshness of Spring".

This quilt was born in 2006. It was created in shades of blue for the background and daisies of white with yellow centers. Today I have remade it, creating a more scenic view using background shades of green, purple and blue.
