Pat Campbell's Birds of Paradise

I have also started working on my next Pat Campbell's design - her Birds of Paradise.  Below are 2 of the 9 blocks.  The applique design about 16" square, thus there are 4 to 5 hoopings per block.

Chelsea Garden Quilt with Pat Campbell

This was my first year at Houston as an exhibitor.  I had placed the Chelsea Garden Quilt on the back wall of my booth and had many admirers looking at the colors, design and the quilting (by Richard Larson).  Pat Campbell and her husband John stopped by several times and were very pleased with the responses to Pat's quilt that was done in the hoop with an embroidery machine.  Pat honored me with allowing me to take a picture of her with the quilt.
