Oh, Barb, very pretty, and you're right - just the thing to lift the spirits this time of winter.  How did you sew such perfect circles?  Is the narrow inner border three strips of colored fabric, or simply a striped fabric?  Very nice job with the appliqued flowers!

Very nice, Barb.  Are these individual flower applique patterns?  

I'm in a Quilt University class with Leslie Lacika's "Bodacious Blossoms."  She's teaching all sorts of applique techniques for garden flowers, stems, leaves, etc.  I'm not into crafts, but some of the gals have designed some pretty nifty flowers and things. Nice touch with the circles. Your quilt makes a very pleasant showcase for your work.

Barb, your quilt is very beautiful. Your handwork is outstanding. I love your embroidery and your french knots in the center of your purple flower. Your fabric and colors are very very pretty.

It's beautiful and really does make me remember that spring is almost around the corner.  It's been so gloomy this winter in Florida.  

Your applique is perfect.  Is it needleturn?  What method did you use?
