Catch Up #2 – a quilty finish

Continuing my catch up mode, today I want to share a quilt that I made for last Quiltmarket…yes I am that behind in my blogging!

Maywood Studio’s approached me to make a quilt top for them for their new range of fabric, Catalina.  They had a pattern that they wanted to use, but did need someone who paper pieced.

  1. Amazing! Outside your normal design choices too, I would never have guessed it was yours, but I absolutely love it! What a great advertisement for a fabric range, and what fun for you to work with a fabric company.

  2. I just finished this into a table runner, but now I’m stuck as to how to quilt it. Did Nancy do an all-over design, or did she do something different within the flowers?
