Blooms for Julie

Debbie Breer, Cotton Rhapsody Quilting,
The patchwork pattern for this fabulous quilt was published by The Quilt Show.
Debbie searched hard for designs to go into the unusual shaped areas, and despite me being somewhat slow in getting them done, she patiently waited and I think we were both pleased with the final results.
Point to point work is always my first port of call, and so once I broke the block down into the shapes of the parts which needed to be dealt with, after some different possibilities the final areas were arrived at. Debbie's client had given the brief 'no feathers, something modern'. Circles and straigh(ish) lines fitted that bill.
Debbie really pulled it off on this quilt - I was absolutely thrilled to see the photos when they arrived.
Debbie's comments:
"I can't tell you how much I appreciated your help designing these digital designs. I had about given up hope. The owner was thrilled with the end results. The quilt is really beautiful!!!! She was headed home to put the embellishments on it. It turned out so much better than I had ever dreamed. Thank You!!!"
Isn't it great when it all works well together.
