Bella Garden


 Dawn has been very busy making this beautiful quilt by McKenna Ryan called
Bella Garden. The amount of patience and time this quilt must take is mind blowing.
I was very nervous quilting this quilt, because I knew how precious this quilt is. I started out with a plan for the centre piece and then as I was quilting it each section came to me.

 Bella Garden

For the background fill for this centre piece I did small C shapes and
just repeated throughout. I ditched all around the outlines of the flowers......
yes it took me a long time.


How cute is Mr Frog, I just love him. I just did a water background behind the lillies
and fronds.


 Feahters!! who doesn't love feathers. We had to squeeze them in 
somewhere, I love the movement they give to a quilt.

There was a lot of in the ditch on this quilt, but it was so worth it.
it just adds to the finish.




Pop on over to Dawns Blog http://sewmuchtoquilt.blogspot.com.au/
I'm sure she will be blogging about this and her journey with this quilt soon.

Have a great day
