Jardin de Poche' AROUND THE BUSH Quilt Pattern OPTIONS - Veronique’s Quilt Designs
This delightful and small project is for both embroiderers and appliqué enthusiasts. A traditional shape, the orange peel, revisited and extended to include a mini garden, a “Jardin de Poche” (pocket garden). Whilst keeping the embroidery to 3 or 4 of the most traditional stitches you will make some gorgeous native flowers such as Sturt Desert Peas, Eucalyptus flowers and much more … even a Fairy-Wren. Discover or rediscover the some of the beautiful beauties of the bush.
We all have a lovely stash of embroidery threads that we are dying to use in a project, and this is the perfect opportunity. In a working style booklet, I have given some suggestions for the colours of the flowers but after it is your garden, so you need to choose your colours’ scheme. And there is even a section per flowers for you to right which threads and colours you are using for each specific flower.
The appliqué is simple, but it’s all in the fabrics! Lovely Liberty lawns and 1930’s to give that fresh and timeless look.
The whole project is on a linen/cotton background, the perfect setting for Liberty fabrics and embroidery. As for the quilting the word is KISS (keep it simple s…).
I have kept it small, but it is up to you to double or triple some of your favorite's flowers and if you do make a queen size quilt, please send me a picture.
I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I have. I did find hard to stop making more blocks!Options ...
