This gorgeous applique quilt was made by Coral.
It was drafted from a small picture in a book – Birds ‘n Roses by Margaret Docherty. The picture was of the Garden Quilt by Josephine Craig 1933. Coral enlarged the picture and from that made templates for the applique.
I quilted feathers in the larger plain areas, and McTavished the background.
I did small pebbles around the applique to make it stand out next to the McTavishing.
