Briar Rose


Last night I had the pleasure
of returning Dawns quilt to her
after I quilted it.

It was such a pleasure quilting this quilt, its called
Briar Rose and you can find a free tutorial here at

Dawn made this from a batik Jelly roll and white homespun.



I quilted this on my APQS handguided machine, I statrted by
outlining all the white blocks with a 1/4 inch border. I then made a template
for the centre stems and copied to each block before I quilted the feathers.

 I then did line dancing in all the square blocks followed by
a meandering feather around the edge.



The back was just as good as the front but this picture doesn't do it justice
I just did simple ruler work in the outer border.

Corner Border

You can go and see more about this quilt on Dawns Blog

I was really happy with how this turned out and am ready to tackle
my next quilt.

Happy Quilting!!
