I have wanted to make this quilt for what seems like ages. It's the one quilt I keep going back to when I go through my books for inspiration. I really wanted to make it from Flea Market Fancy fabrics but never had quite enough of the range for the quilt, until now.
Now with the reprints of this beautiful range, I can mix original with the reprints and finally make it. As I've been out of action for a bit over a week, I can't sit at the machine to sew, so this is the perfect way of starting a new quilt, handsewing needle-turned applique. I think the reason I like this quilt so much is that the flowers remind me of tulips and that in turn reminds me of my dad. It really makes me smile.
