Garden Nouveau

This is Jane's quilt, and what a gorgeous quilt it is!  This is the second quilt she has made from the Garden Nouveau pattern by Vicky Lawrence and she says she loves the colors of this one. 

The applique is done with satin stitch on her embroidery machine.  She used a digitized version of the Garden Nouveau pattern called Nouveau Fleur  by Anna's Awesome Applique Designs.  I wish I had taken a close up of the satin stitch because it looks so beautifully perfect!

All that satin stitch took a long time to do.  Jane told me how long it took to stitch out the long border and it was something like 80 hours.  Or maybe it was 50 hours?  Brain fart.
A long time anyway.

I used several shades of purple thread and gold metallic for the feathers around the blocks. The batting is Hobbs wool. 

I told Jane she should really enter this in a quilt show.


  1. Beautiful quilt! Your quilting, stunning as always!

  2. Oh my that is just stunning and she should absolutely enter it into a show or two.

  3. Gorgeous quilt! I love the fabrics you used, the color choice, and the quilting of course!
