I feel like a complete newbie at this quilting lark!.
I was very taken with the 18 month BOM that Esther Aliu is running based on a coverlet from 1790. I have never done a quilt designed by anyone else or used many of the techniques used in this quilt so it is a major learning curve all round. The deciding factor was that our house dates from pre-1750 so it may well have had similar styled coverlets on the beds.
Of course even though it is mainly hand sewn my Bernina couldn't be left out so instead of appliquing little flowers I decided to add a 3D daisy chain. It is all very scrappy and I might make this into a cushion and start off again with some better co-ordinated colours (although it looks better in real life!)--------or I may stay with it and hopefully see my skills improve as the quilt grows!
