my name is Manuela. I am living in the western part of Germany near the dutch border and I am really happy to join your wonderful group. I love applique and I was fascinated by this beautiful quilt when I saw it for the first time. So I ordered the pattern together with the background fabric (a solid tan) and a fabric kit of about 70 fat sixteenths of reproduction fabric.
Unfortunately I am a very slow stitcher and I really need a lot of time to choose the right fabrics but today I can post my first finished block and the second not yet finished block:
Happy stitching to everyone!
