Spring in Bloom for 2013

I just finished quilting this gorgeous iris themed quilt for the Gun Barrel Quilters Guild of Mabank, Texas. It will be the Guild's raffle quilt for 2013. All of the blocks in the quilt were made by various members of the Guild. Raffle tickets will go on sale this month and continue until the annual quilt show in April 2013.

The combination of hand applique blocks and piecing make this quilt really special.

I used what I call my "Las Vegas showgirl feathers" on the pieced tree blocks.

The background quilting around the applique consists of two of my versions of McTavishing. I just love the look of these backgrounds. They provide the movement and interest that is needed in negative spaces.

The dark purple borders were quilted with overlapping arches with microstippling accents.

 And a close-up view of the center block...

Another member of our quilt guild is binding the quilt...can't wait to see the finished product!!
