Peony is the very first block from my quilt "Forget Me Not" which is an applique wall quilt designed to celebrate and enjoy the beauty of flowers. I have selected and designed applique flowers that have a special meaning and significance to me- and which I know I'll love looking at for years to come once the quilt is finished.
Peony is a special block for me as it's one of my favourite flowers. I've turn edge appliqued this block, which was time intensive but definitely worth the extra effort. The fabric used is from my own hand dyed stash and the petals have been highlighted and heat set with white pencil.
