Work on the green arcs continues apace....
Today I added some thorn stitches into my green arc sections of the quilt.
I just love this stitch.
Here is the upper left arc. You can see I stitched the rather blobby-looking lace applique leaves on there too.
Here is the upper right arc.
There are a ton of buds in my flower garden....just when I should be finished filling in the green arcs, I can be running out there to get inspired by all the new blooms for the inner, warm-colored section of this quilt.
White flowers will go on last, in the center...they are going to be the last to bloom, too.
I always knew gardening and crazy quilting had a synergistic relationship in my life!
I will start with blooms from the alium family...these chives are flowering, and my giant alium is about to pop open.
Isn't that little row of spinach and broccoli so cute? I decided to add a little French potager influence to my perennial garden this year, planting lots of herbs, tomatoes, leeks, broccoli, spinach, garlic, shallots, and lettuce in with my roses and other flowers. It is fun to experiment!
I don't think I will be putting any vegetables into this quilt, though.
I have that tomato CQ brewing for late summer...I can sneak the veggies in there... ;-)
