Completed: September 2001

Machine Applique

This quilt was made in a hurry!  My dear friend Diana conspired with just about everyone I know and bought me a plane ticket to visit her in London for my 30th birthday!  This was made as a token of my appreciation.

The pattern is by Eileen Campbell, from her book “U is for Unicorn”.
dragondetail2This is the first quilt I have actively enjoyed quilting.  I learned more about appliqué and a bit about machine embroidery.  If you look really hard, you can see some quilting (lots of swirls and leaves echoing the other bits)…. Okay, it’s pretty hard to see it, but it is there – please believe me!

 

And here’s the label I made (also shows the backing)!
