#10 – almost there, just two more flowers to go. Then I can move onto the final quilt I want to get done before summer (I want to do a quilt based on the Drunkard’s Path back insert I created for the Moons & Planets quilt).
Lots of thread changing involved in stitching this flower. You’re not aware of the changes because they mirror the shading of the petals and sepals.
Again, the difficult decision – how much to stitch and what to leave open. I’ve enhanced the brightness of the flower colours using the Inktense watercolour pencils – just enough to make different areas stand out a bit more. Overall I’m happy with the detail I’ve managed with this flower.
Day lily. One of my favorite flowers. I am keen to see how you work these blocks into the quilt you have planned.
They’re not for a quilt Laura Kate. They are stand alone wall art pieces. Two more to go then I’m done. They’re for the July/August show in Truro. The quilt is something else.
