working on a flower to applique onto a piece of denim…a niece will be having her second baby girl anyday…..need to get busy…..

I was on line looking for 3 D quilting and found a new type of quilt, I had never seen before. The Pine Cone or Pine Burr quilt. It was a poular pattern with southern African Americans. I found a cool story here, of a man named Oscar Evans who made his quilt, while in his late  70’s.

Those quilts were my inspiration for this flower, I’d like to one day make a larger piece using this technique. The quilts are really stunning. The Pine Burr quilt happens to be Alabama’s state quilt. I didn’t know that states had quilts…learn something new every day!

I finally learned how to create a link…Yeah! Hope you like learning about Oscar Evans.

    I love the way the embellishment mirrors the pattern on the fabric. LOVE the fabric as well.
