Delizia Floreale

Dear readers

I’ve been working on a new quilt design over the past 6 months. At the same time coincidently,  I have been attending Italian lessons, so I have named the quilt ‘Delizia Floreale’  which in Italian means ‘Floral Delight’.  The title reflects my love of working with floral themes and the medallion in this project  is an abstract vase of flowers, bordered with simple block and dresden plate patchwork.

I am embroidering using needle turn appliqué and simple stitch techniques and will be hand piecing throughout.  I started the project with idea of using neutral linens as the background theme and I’ve auditioned brightly printed fabrics and primary colours  as the main colour  way.

I am enjoying working on the design an it is evolving slowly. I hope to have it ready, in my teaching portfolio  for the Patchwork, Quilting and Papercraft Cruise in April and Quiltessentially Clunes Stitching Retreat in September.
