St Germain quilt top and new web shop

All done at last!
Here it is blowing in the wind on the washing line. It is too long for the line, so you can't see the top border, but it does have one! This was a long exercise in needleturn applique!  
 I don't usually wash it at this point, but I had to draw a grid on the fabric for placements of the orange peel shapes, and although I managed to get rid of most of the lines, some just did not want to budge completely, hence a quick wash.
I think this quilt will look nice hand quilted, so it will take a long time yet before it will be finished.


The lovely people at Midsomer Quilting, just few miles from me, have now opened online shop,
and you can explore midsomerq.com here . What is unusual about this web shop is that they will cut you as little as 10cm, which will be very welcome by many applique quilters!

We had a lovely sunny day here today (after a frosty night).
I leave you with a couple of pictures from our local park.
