This quilt was taught at "Patchwork Mania" (Camden) and it took me 18 months to make it. I changed the design slightly because there was one flower block that I didn't like. I doubled up on the butterflies and the fans that are in the corners. The quilt done by the teacher was done in pastel florals, similar to the original. I liked blues and reds together at the time and was so pleased with the end result. It has an oriental look about it, this was not planned. I got this quilt professionally quilted because I put so much work into it and wanted it to be perfect. I finished a few years ago and still have not put a border on it. The original had a scalloped border but because mine is not floral I am considering just adding a straight border, what do you think?
