I started the needle turn applique back in the spring of 2011 as a mystery quilt where part of the pattern was released each month.
Then the section with these flowers was released and I was in love again.
that I posted about on this blog.
Thanks to ideas shared by this blog's followers, I stumbled into the perfect (albeit insane) fill. Magenta thread on a white background. It does look super cool...as long as you are viewing it close up. There are lots of details like that in this quilt.
It was a long journey and worth every stitch.
