DIL picked out this design from internet photos. This was a virtual quilt design by Judy Butcher of virtualquilter.wordpress.com. I was not provided with the project file or instructions, I just made my own plan for it, with a few minor adjustments, mainly to make the center medallion into a rectangle. Judy lives in Australia, which may help explain the name of the quilt. Thank you, Judy, for sharing this design inspiration.
This quilt has 1,106 raw-edge appliqued petals. The quilt finished at 96 x 106 . It sure feels bigger when you try to lift it. Most of it was quilted on my Janome 9400 using westalee rulers and templates. What alot of fun I had!
