This quilt is inspired by my husband's garden. I love the way the roses take over and even try escaping over the back fence. It's hand appliqued and machine free-motion quilted.100% cotton fabrics and batting. Various colours of stranded thread for the applique and various polyester thread for the quilting. The pattern is available on the Craftsy.com  site as a pdf download.

This is beautiful, What's the name of pattern?  I would love to make one for my handicapped neighbor.

Thank you, I'm so glad you like it. This is my own design and I have entered it in the International Quilt Expo in California. I am currently making it into a pattern so stay tuned.

I'm in line for that pattern!

There is someone on the board now searching for green fabric check and see if it is the same that you used.  Maybe you can help her for name of fabric .

The green fabric is a batik and I bought it from my local spotlight store here in Perth. I will visit the store and see if I can find a name or manufacturer for you.

Fabulous!  I so enjoyed your beautiful garden right now in the midst of suffering our cold Minnesota spring.

Quite lovely!  I also wish you luck at the International Quilt Expo.  I am a fan of applique and hope to develop (start, actually) some skill at free motion quilting.  Thanks for sharing.
