I love to do hand quilting and have made several traditional style whole cloth quilts over the years. So far I have made all my voyage pieces by machine and I have realised that, to be complete, a hand quilted piece should be included. I didn't want it to be traditional. I have used a photo of a model of the structure of pollen I took on a walk in Kew Gardens as inspiration for the pattern. Then, with encouragement from Magie and her friend Isobel, during a recent visit to Yorkshire, I added holes! I have particularly enjoyed making this one. Thanks to Graham for the photos!
