Merri Garton has sewn this amazing Mary Brown Quilt. Merri has chosen a lemon background and quite bright fabrics for this epic applique quilt which demonstrates her skill at 'reading' fabric. I have outlined all of the applique as I feel this helps to define each of the applique pieces, the centre panel then has a feathered wreath with circles in the stem. The corner blocks were surrounded by a curved feather and swirl pattern and in the outer border, I quilted a circular pattern in the background. I feel that the background circles behind all of the outer blocks helps tie the variety of applique blocks together.
