Posie Patch Quilt Finish!

So happy to have this one finished! 

I started the top a few years ago when co-teaching a retreat class with my friend Christa.  I used some loved & hoarded Susan Branch/RJR fabrics from a few years prior.  It is still one of my favorite collections! 

The flowers are fused with Heat-n-Bond and machine-appliqued down. I quilted the 9-patches with curvy lines, and echo-quilted around the flowers.  I did a free-motion leaf design (which I often use) around the border. 

 I used one of my favorite text prints from Polka Dot Stitches by Lori Holt and Riley Blake on the back.  So cute, it has lots of stitch-y words and illustrations.  The binding is another Susan Branch/RJR print and is applied entirely by machine.  LoVe machine-finished binding.

Next up -- finishing my grandson's baby quilt (he's almost 3 months), a blouse and zipper pouch for my local MQG's swap.
