Beautiful quilt, Mucha inspired with Amy Butler and Philip Jacobs fabrics.

Share it Please
Nik our fabric buyer and all round fabric and quilt guru has been working on this quilt for awhile. But what a quilt! It is not finished yet but it shows what can be achieved with the TAP paper, some excellent hand applique (which you have to see on the original to really appreciate it) and an inspiring design led by the beautiful fabrics themselves. 

"Work in progress on a wall hanging featuring my youngest daughter in her prom dress. The layout was inspired by an Alphonse Mucha illustration. Two designs made this happen, an Amy Butler print from her Soul Blossoms range for the circular border and Philip Jacobs wonderful Daffodil and Dogwood design for the foreground. First time hand piecing -could be the last!"
