Hold Onto Your Heart: Part 6

This month it’s time to create the applique birdsong scene: you'll find all the wonderful details over in the pattern which is released today. I love this scene, it's the perfect place to begin the first of our four stories. When I was sketching the design, this bird couple just flew into the scene and perched themselves on the cacti. There's always a bird in my designs, well almost always - but in this instance, the cacti came before the birds.. which is a little unusual, but felt right straight away.

Cacti represent warmth, protection and endurance. The birds are plucking fruit from the blossoming flower heads whilst around them, vines are flourishing. There are two orbs tucked under the petal swirls. These orbs appear only once in the design and are very interesting, I'll return to them tomorrow and show you how I made mine.
These images are from my full colour quilt top, I just love how the overall look is coming together. There were a few moments when I was worried, it felt like too much colour all at once..but has finally come into it's own.
 'Hold Onto Your Heart' is a paid BOM 
It's a breathtaking quilt full of meaningful symbols and beauty. The floral border is a triumph which offers an additional  pieced option - making it versatile for all skill levels. Perfect for lovers and enthusiasts of applique. 
You can start this BOM today! 
Be sure to visit my Online Quilt Group on Facebook where progress images are being shown all the time. It's a massive inspiration and I warn you, it's addictive!
