Rose's Stag Do?

It's no secret that the ladies who come to class on Tuesdays are prolific quilt makers. They inspire each other with design, pattern and colour and the sheer joy of making quilts for other people, most at quite a pace too.... marathon pace in some cases.

This ammmmmazing quilt has been made by Rose, a Tuesday lady (she's a bit of a cake goddess too!!) She picked up a pattern while on our Annual Pilgrimage to the Festival Of Quilts (yes, our coach is booked for 2019) Anyway, Rose didn't much like the whole quilt pattern/design but loved the applique designs for the Stags. Once her main Stag applique blocks were ready, we got our heads together and Rose was happy to 'Wing It' for the joining/filler blocks.  Quarter Log Cabin blocks and 16-Patches... very effective indeedy... Didn't she do a great job!!!

The quilting is better seen from the quilt's rear view and look at the great use of leftover and rather rich and beautiful Batik fabrics... a double sided Stag Do? ha ha ha
Congratulations Rose. It is an absolutely fabulous and finished gifting quilt. Toot toot toot-etty-toot!
