I wanted to learn how to applique better & found this quilt - My Whimsical Garden by Piece o'Cake in 2014. Using my stash I worked on it and finally finished it in 2016. I had entered it in the Gimli/Interlake Quilt Show in August 2016 and finished it 2 days before the show!
I machine pieced, hand appliqued, and free motion quilted the top (edging in the squares and pebbles in the border. I received 2nd place for People's Choice Award & $50 gift certificate at local quilt shop - very unexpected, but delightful!!
It measures 75" length x 65" width. It now hangs in our cottage in Hecla!
These are the four postcards I completed for Round 25 of Postmark'd Art - No Theme/Summer
I had taken these photos with my macro lens and printed on fabric. Rather disappointed with the colour quality that came from the printing on fabric - will have to work on this, if I do it again.
The postcards are 6" x 4" fabric postcards & all 4 went to the USA. I mailed them September 13. 2016

So are there are over 10,000 people signed up to do this quilt - Facebook and their website are places to upload pictures of completed blocks.
Above is 20% of my quilt so far - 20 of the blocks, not the bonus or additional.
I am using Moda Miniature Gatherings fabric selection.
Hopefully I will finish ...
Very glad I only had to make three as they took a lot of work!! But it was enjoyable work - always wanted to make a crazy quilt - maybe when I have time this will entice me to try one.
Two of these went overseas - one to England & one to Wales.
