'Petal Plates', by Jo from Fridays hand sewing class

'Petal Plates' is a pattern we wrote to incorporate hand piecing and machine piecing in a way to show off a lovely centre in a block. Our original quilt was done in soft greys and pinks with a gentle floral centre. I love how Jo has taken the vibrant Anna Maria Horner's 'Folk Song' fabric and made it the centre of attention by enveloping it in a gentle green with white spot, and then some darker William Morris fabric. It's a fabulous eclectic mix of fabrics with varying degrees of dark and light that make it a beautiful combination.
