Blueberry Park

The lovely Karen Lewis from Blueberry Park sent me all the way from the UK, some small samples of her beautiful screen printed fabrics to make something. So I made this:


I used Karen's fabric to make three EPP (English Paper Pieced) flowers and appliquéd them to a pieced quilt top. 





It was quilted in a floral design which reflected the floral element found in the fabric using four colours of thread.

The pieced backing included the lime fabrics.


Thank you Karen for the privilege of using your fabrics to make this project. It will be finding a home with a good friend.


Karen is a self taught designer from Leeds who designs and screen prints her own fabrics. Check out the gorgeous fabric and handmade items at her shops.

  3. The quilt looks lovely! I recognise where the pictures were taken. We took the kids there when we were up in Queensland earlier this year. Such a great spot. Jairah threw lots of pebbles in the water! Jacinta

  8. Love the combination of Karen and Jane in this quilt and the quilting is fantastic. I don't usually go for contrast threads but these are spot on!

  10. Those paper pieced flowers are stunning - did you applique them on, or did the instructions include how to turn it into a square block? Also, I love the idea of using all those different thread colors in your quilting; it's extra work (and I would never have thought of it) but it really looks sharp and adds another dimension to the whole-cloth section (not to mention looks great with your flowers).
