This is a project I designed ages ago, but have never got around to finishing. In fact I was a little surprised to see that it was actually January 2009 when I started.
I have had the whole design drawn up on Illustrator for over a year, but am only now nearing the finish line, as it has been put away in a box for ages.
Initially it was going to be a cushion, but I am leaning towards the idea of turning it into the centre of a medallion quilt. Once I finish the applique I will reassess my plan. The design is called “Tea in the Garden”, you can see it here on my ironing board. I only have three more butterflies to work, before I have completed the whole block.
So what do you think? Can you imagine this better as a quilt centre, or as a cushion?
Would you buy this, if it was a pattern for sale?
