Tuesday Treasures

My Tuesday treasure is this wall quilt which I made for my mother.
I think it was called 'Tea Party' by 'Crab Apple Designs'
It was a block of the month stitchery with log cabin borders.
Each month I waited very impatiently for it to arrive and some months would ask for two to be sent together as I absolutely loved sewing it and couldn't wait for it to be finished.
I embellished the hand quilting around the cups and flowers with seed beads which sparkle subtly in certain light. I used my Gammil quilting machine for the rest of the quilting.
It is so pretty.
Here is a close up of some of the stitcheries

  1. Beautiful quilt and stitching. It's a gorgeous design. What is it about teacups that sets our hearts a fluttering.

  2. Beautiful quilt Bronwyn. I remember you stitching it.

  3. What a beautiful quilt. I love all the blocks but that yellow daisy one really stands out.

  4. This is a really beautiful quilt. I remember when you were embroidering it. Each block more and more exquisite.
