All these quilts have been made with Australian Native flowers as the subject. I love the many different shapes, colours and textures of these flowers. There are so many to choose from.

Class Sample Quilts
This is my largest Waratah pattern. The flower itself measures 90cm across.
It is made using my 3D Baglique technique, no more turning tiny edges to sew down. When finished you will have a free standing, padded flower that can be placed where ever you decide it should go on your quilt.
When your finished top is assembled and quilted it becomes very textural and 3D.
This is a very freeing technique as there really is no mistakes to worry about. Add or remove some leaves and petals, your choice.
