Flowering Vines

I don't have much to show while I'm working on my vines so I dragged this one out.In 2006, I made this to teach to a small group of ladies who wanted to try applique, and they also got an introduction to simple paper foundation piecing.
It is a compilation of two Piece o' Cake patterns from their book Flowering Favourites
It has Quilters Dream Request cotton batting and is machine quilted by moi with Mettler 60 wt cotton so it's not too stiff.

Your work is amazing. beautiful! I enjoy your blog and look forward to see more of your vines. I am trying to teach myself applique. I am in the beginning stages right now trying to get those points to lay right. Thank you for your comment on my blog about the mini quilt. Keep in stitching!

I absolutely love everything about this quilt! One of the prettiest quilts I've seen in a long time. For some reason it absolutely "speaks" to me... Thank you so much for sharing the photo.
