I prepared the top for this mini quilt last fall. I had planned on sewing down the appliques as part of the quilting, and it turned out great, although I wouldn’t recommend it for anything much bigger than this top, about 20 x 20 inches. I’m glad I have a new, bright, spring wallhanging to look at! I’m pretty sure its a Kim Diehl pattern, but i’m not sure from which of her books.
I ordered some fabric for the binding on the Tiger Lily quilt – the same line as the inner points and borders are, but a bit darker. I’m hoping it will finish off the quilt just right, and I’ll start to like it again :)
