Cherish Nature - Part 3

Here is the progress I have made so far on the Cherish Nature quilt. Blocking the panel section only made a partial improvement to the bird nest section so I decided to cut the inner border strips wider. Then after I sewed the inner border to the bird nest centre I squared up that section back to the 17 1/2 inch square it was suppose to be with the inner border. When you look at the middle section you can see that the width of the inner border varies all the way around but I'm going to have to live with that since there is no other way around this mess with panels that are being printed off grain.


Next I'm planning on working on the appliqué that goes on the quilt.  I've just put up the various pieces.  I still have to cut some leaves that will be going on the teal sections on the left and right hand sides.  I figure it will be easier to do the appliqué at this point than when the whole quilt top is finished and then I have a lot more fabric to manipulate.

Oh what a pain in the rear. Hopefully things will work out now that you're on to working on the applique. I do like the look the triangles give the entire thing. It's sort of on point, but not quite, sort of curved. It's nice.

you've done a great job of working with the off grain fabrics. You'll see the accommodations you've had to make, but a non-quilter isn't looking for that sort of thing.... :-))

This is really a pretty quilt. The colors are so soft. Quite lovely.
