day 14 - Pennsylvania Posies

Another challenge quilt ... have you noticed a trend here? This one was made for the Pilgrim Roy Challenge to raise funds for the National Quilt Museum in Paducah Kentucky and so I named it Pennsylvania Posies for Paducah.

Hand appliqued and hand quilted. Machine quilted in the ditch of the 1/2 square triangles.

The challenge fabrics plus my 2 additions (the pink on the right and the bottom yellow/cheddar).

The full quilt
Pennsylvania Posies - original design
40" x 40"
It was inspired by several antique quilts in my collection. And you can see more about the challenge by looking at my posts from earlier this year. After the show, the quilts will travel to other quilt shows in the US and then will be auctioned off next April at the 2013 National Quilt Museum fundraiser Auction.  
This quilt was hand appliqued and then the applique flowers and baskets were stuffed for a trapunto effect.  While the borders/ major seams were machine quilted, the applique motifs and blocks were hand quilted.  The Legacy wool batting was a dream to quilt through and even with heavier thread I was getting about 10 stitches per inch without (hardly) trying.
