This design is from Fabric Trends (Spring 2009), by Cate Tallman-Evans. The moment I saw the magazine article, I knew I had to do this one for mom! She has always loved dogwoods - she has one in her back yard, and I have both a white and pink in my yard.
Fabric is Henry Glass (it feels so wonderful!). Quilt is 88" x 88".
Quilted on my Pfaff 18.8 using both Qbot designs - a design set by One Song Needle Arts - Donna Kleinke (dogwood border, block and cardinal); and freehand - loopy block and border leaves.
My photo helper in this afternoon's sunshine is Sparky :)
