Midnight Garden & Affairs of the Heart

I finished piecing my Midnight Garden quilt. I also got the backing and binding ready. I now am going to wait till after I take my machine quilting class to quilt this. Any ideas on how I should do this are welcome and needed.

These are the final 3 of 36 blocks of my Affairs of the Heart quilt. I now have to stem stitch gold accents on all 36 blocks. ACK! I am going to look at stitches on my sewing maching and see if I can cheat.

Yvette, I love your Midnight Garden quilt. I don't have suggestions for the quilting. I'm sure you will discover many beautiful things when you take the class.

I have the AOTH book but haven't started them yet...it's in the loop someplace LOL. I don't think I would have left the gold accents for last, my heart goes out to you LOL.

Oh goodness...which show is this one going in....truly...so pretty and such beautiful rich colors...I'll bet the photo does not do it justice. Congratulations on such beautiful work.

The Midnight Garden quilt is lovely! I can just envision that in my bedroom, hanging in a spot where I could see it first thing when I open my eyes each morning. Gorgeous. Hopefully, the class will help foster lots of fabulous quilty inspiration. (And hopefully, your machine will help you out with those gold accents too!)

This applique is putting me in the mood for some. Haven't done any in awhile. Very pretty.

This is so pretty where did you get this? I would love this as a kit because I love the colors! I don't really know alot about applique but would probably learn just to do this quilt. I will read more but if you see this can you email me where you got this from? wewouldratherbequilting@gmail.com Thanks!
