I started by echo quilting around the flower and pot. I then used them as the "spine" for my feathers. This was a little tricky around the leaves.
Here is a view of the back. It needs more stitching in the flower and pot which I will get to eventually.
Here is a picture once the rick rack that will go in the binding was added.
Here is a close-up of the area near the leaves and how I managed to use the vase as a spine still. It was challenging, but I didn't want to have to fill it with something else.
The final quilt! Look for the pattern coming Saturday. And don't forget to join my Machine Applique Adventures Facebook group!
