   Cart by Ant van Wyk-Huygens
The Netherlands
     For the cart I used a printed tulip fabric--the Netherlands are known for those flowers--and hand appliqued them on top. Just one fell down and a cat is sitting alongside (also applique). My husband said the cat had a look of "I don't know how that flower fell down."

     I am fairly new to the internet and only recently figured out where some of the quilters are. I particularly enjoyed your page. I have been doing traditional pieced, applique and art quilts for years, but only recently started paper piecing. I'm hooked! As an artist, I design many of my own designs but it's always fun to try the blocks others create.
     ...It was great fun to do. I chose to fill mine with foundation pieced flowers so I drafted up a few for it. I am working with smaller and smaller blocks and I am enjoying the challenge.

     Over a very early morning cup of coffee witha good friend it was decided that I should see what I could do with my new Bernina Artista 180E.
     To do the flowers I first drew a line on the background material to match the top of the cart. All the flowers were done above that line with the exception of the bottom leaf of the mock orange. When the flower patterns were completed I used Steam-A-Seam 2 behind the mock orange leaf so that it could be trimmed as close as possible to the stitches. I also trimmed the bottom edge to allow for a seam allowance. Then, sewing from both edges of the mock orange leaf to the outside of the pattern the flowers were added to the cart. The mock orange leaf was then pressed to the flower cart. After the cart and flowers were joined I then added the morning glory and ivy to the cart.
     The following Bernina Artista cards were used: Columbine, Sagebrush, Mock Orange, Peach Blossom, Ivy, Butterfly, Morning Glory.

     I am providing the cart block and two other blocks that will eventually become part of a jacket. I have more blocks to do. All the blocks will be of a spring theme and all will be paper-pieced.
     Paper piecing is one of my favorite activities. Great idea for a competition as it got me going on that particular collection of fabric. Now if I could only get going on the g-zillion other projects I have in mind to use the g-zillion yards of fabric I own. Oh well, someday.

     Here's my entry for the cart challenge, and a day early, too! Julia and Pete love to ride in the empty wheel barrow after the leaves have been dumped. At a combined weight approaching 75 pounds, they'll have to start taking turns!

     I finished my cart, but with a twist. I made a pocket out of the cart, left it empty, and now I can insert small silk flowers according to the change of season. I actually made a second one, as well, with a darker cart and a green border with Christmas poinsettias inserted into the cart. This picture came out best, however, (I think) so I decided to send this one along.

     In order to finish the flower cart pattern in time for the FIRST deadline :-) I decided to make a decorated sweatshirt for my sister for Christmas! So am sending you a scanning of it as an attachment. I plan to machine embroider butterflies around it.

     I chose a cartful of kitties. I've frozen them in time this way because this is probably only really possible for a nanosecond. I used most of the kitties I've designed so far. (Not eligible for vote.)
