If it wasn’t due to my daughter’s admission to the hospital (and me too), I really can’t leave my day job, renovation detail and craft aside. I have put down everything (including my 5 year-old son) to accompany her to the hospital for a 1-week treatment plan. While she is resting in bed for recuperation, I am able to sit down with full concentration, sorting out a bunch of photos, and start writing the tutorials again…. I am blessed to have my miserable schedules re-prioritize again.
As I have promised before, once I have done my daughter’s “Secret Garden” quilt blanket, I will post all the details here to share. Without a doubt, this blanket took a lot of preparations, from idea to paper, to blanket, and now to tutorial & pattern sharing. Due to it’s intricacy design that involved a lot of appliques, I have to share the detail part by part when necessary.
This flower applique pattern is part of the tutorials of the “Secret Garden” Quilt Blanket, but it is not limit to this application, you may adapt the pattern to do other craft. In this tutorial, I also included the trapunto method to make the appliqued flowers “pop up”. Coming up next will be the other applique patterns for butterfly, ladybug, snails, songbirds, tree, sun & font of Secret Garden etc…. so please stay tuned.
