Here is one of her blocks, waiting for the embroidered embellishment. Care to join in the fun?

I've been following along on her blog as she designed it, and patiently waiting for the pattern to be available. It's so stunning, and I can't imagine the amount of work it took to create it. Here is a close-up of one of the first month's two blocks.
Each border is unique, and each vase different. The flowers in the vases at the corners are appliqued after the borders are sewn together, hiding the seams, which I haven't see before.
If you want to join up, the BOM is available now at Quakertown Quilts. There are a lot of different ways to order it; pattern, kit, or even an option to have the pattern printed out on freezer paper already, which I think is a great idea for us time-crunched stitchers. You can read more about the quilt, and see more pictures, on Sue's blog. Care to join me??
Maybe you've noticed the new button on my sidebar. I've been selected as one of the 50 Best Quilting Blogs by Guide to Art Schools. There are some very talented ladies on the list, and I am honored to be in such great company! Be sure and check out the list, either by clicking on the button, or here. There are many of my favorite blogs listed, and some that are new to me. I'll be checking out the new ones to see what I'm missing.
Please keep our Aussie friends affected by Hurricane Yasi in your thoughts and prayers.
