Busy, busy busy!
I had a weekend of sewing and this is number one of what emerged. I have made 3 pieces (I will post the others soon!) for the exhibtion and sale. The "drawing" is from a contour sketch I did a while back, which I traced onto fabric and then machine stitched the outline. The background I then heavily machine quilted.

I keep saying the same thing over and over, but I love your work! What I like specifically about this piece is not just the subject and layout but moreso the way you left space around the flower and didn't quilt up close on it.

Thankyou! This was a piece that decided for itself what it needed - don't you just love it when that happens!

I also love this little piece. The way you quilted it makes the flower just pop!

This is a wonderful piece! As Karoda said, the layout is wonderful and the quilt-drawing-quilting is marvelous, all the more for the empty spaces bringing the eye back to the complexity of the quilting. A fantastic little piece! Keep it up!!!
