How did I already get to ten of these lovely flowers?! Wow. Here is number ten. If you look at the orange striped batik in this block you can see that I stitched across between the petals. I knew that a darker piece was going to cover that so I did it to make it easier on myself.
The back of layer 1
The front of layer one. I love the shape of these leaves!
On this little quilt, I used the same motif, a teardrop surrounded by a three bump feather and then outlined. What I changed however, was what I put inside the teardrop. I challenged myself to change up the inside every few motifs and came up with all sorts of interesting things some of which I like better than others. Take a look. You'll find all sorts of things including curlicues and curls and bumps and triangles and....
It was so much fun to play! I hope you get to quilt today! Suzy
I did the blanket stitch the other way! What a revelation. I realized that if I put this light yellow piece on top of the blue, it would show through, so I decided to put it underneath and do the stitching onto the blue. I like how it looks kind of like a candle flame.
Here is the flower part of layer 1
And all of layer 1
And the back. There was a thread bobble with the bobbin thread, but it didn't affect the front, so I left it.
I love flowers. I can't resist taking pictures of them. Here are a few I took at the local park the other day.
I adore this flower. It has little yellow bits at the ends of the petals. I wonder if the cone originally had petals too. I'm not sure, but it sure is cute. It looks like it's wearing a tutu doesn't it?
Found this in the bathroom at Bear Patch Quilting Company in White Bear Lake. Isn't it fun how they put a piece of fabric in this ornate frame?
