G 193 Judi Olson - Blossoms - Clam Shell

This is a project that I designed, pieced and quilted myself. I was working on a fabric challenge - but purple is my color - and NO challenge at all!! I used the Clam Shell template on all 4 sides - turning the quilt and template as needed. The Diamond crosshatch was all done by handguided ruler work. This photo is from up at the MN quilt show where it received a "Faculty Choice Ribbon" from Tricia Spitzmueller for "Successful use of 3-D!" This quilt measures 64 1/2" x 46 1/2" I have since add more blossoms and a few more leaves too.... Sandy Truebenbach made all of the Blossom Yo-Yo's for me, I call her "The Yo-Yo Queen".
