Floral Impressions Appliqué

How many of us have admired the beautiful appliqué work of fantastic designer Deborah Kemball and lusted after emulating her?

We are delighted to say that Quilter’s Guild member Janice Lawson  has done just that, and what a bouquet.

She has sent us a couple of  photos of Floral Impressions cushions she has finished and said that she has also worked on a Floral Impressions quilt top, so we look forward to seeing that when it has been quilted.

The Kemball appliqué  bug has obviously bitten since Janice contacted us about ordering specific Fat 8ths of 19 colours so that she can make a Midnight Garden quilt (quick peek of Deborah’s original if you click here!).  We can’t wait to see the results.

PS As a Guild member Janice is taking advantage of the 10% discount Oakshott Fabrics offer as part of the Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles Retailer Scheme.
