Golden Pansies



This is a lasagna style quilt done with strips with the sweetest little pansy flowers in it. I decided to quilt giant pansies all over with leaves and loops. I used Old Gold thread by PermaCore and Quilter's Dream Select batting.

I got my inspiration ffrom the little flowers in the fabric. But I got the mechanics of quilting the flowers from Deloa Jones' book Quilt Me a Garden. Thank you Deloa.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
