Coming back to the parade


Here are some fab quilts with Boysenberry in them!



I could not find the name of the quilt maker... But she makes awesome traditional quilts... Go have a look here...


This is one of the beautiful Amish Country Quilts. Hop over here to see more...


This is a beautiful modern quilt made using boysenberry as a neutral!
It looks amazing!
It is made by Cytel and I recommend you go and check out her work... You'll get lost on her blog!


It is also a common choice for making hawaiian applique quilts! Here's one from Island Girlz

What would I pair with boysenberry?






Here's my quilt design for the day


I tried my hand at spirals and the end results were not too bad!

What do you think? I doubt if I'll use this design for an entire quilt, I'll start feeling dizzy by the end of it! But maybe to highlight a few parts...
