A Blue Bouquet on Twilt Tuesday

Blue BouquetA while back I made a quilt called “A Blue Bouquet for Barbara Jean”. It was a quilt I made in memory of my mother who passed away when I was very young. This little Twilt, “Blue Bouquet”, uses the same 3D flower block but has only six petals where the blocks in the larger quilt each had eight petals. I added hot stick Crystals in the light flower print inset and in the center of the 3D flower as well as a bead and embroidery.

The inspiration for the Twilt, “A Blue Bouquet for Barbara Jean”.

    Wow that is one gorgeous twilt, so’s the quilt. Blue and white are my kinda colours! I like the center detail too.

    • Thanks Jules! I knew I was right about the popularity of Blue & White quilts. They remind me of Blue & White dishes.
