Hand appliqued and curved piecing. One of those would be enough to try out for a new technique, but at the same time? Then to make it a bed quilt and to give it away for a wedding gift.. Wow.
Proud as I am of the quilting on this quilt, the photos simply don't do justice to what I had to start with. Amazing applique all done by hand by Karen and her sister Laura. The wool batting really gives definition to their work.
This shows the back of the quilt to show the detail of the quilting around the appliques. I quilted it quite densely to give a trapunto look to their applique.
