Pat's Peace Sign...Part 1

This is the t-shirt Pat was wearing that inspired her to suggest the Floral Peace Sign project. She thought it would look good in 3 D flowers, and that was all I needed to hear to get my motor running.....
So I just had to get to work on Pat's block today. Inspiration has struck and the iron is hot!

As a backdrop I am using a print from last spring's March Take It Further project, fused to some green silk that Pat herself dyed and gave to me a few years ago.
The block is 12" square, asymmetrical at first glance.

After a few hours of work, there is a little more balance.
Of course, this is all just "background" for the 3 D flowers Pat wants.
Progress will be posted!

I like how the design was balanced out with the stitching. And it all blends so well. Looking forward to seeing this progress.

Love the way it's coming out. Nicely balanced, that green is gorgeous.

I'm taking notes on your approach for my Mother Rejoice piece. I like the way your embellishment enhances the original image.

I love the colors in this piece, they're positively electric. I don't know what those green things are (velvet?) but they look like geckos frolicking.

I'm loving the texture of those velvet leaves/poufs/bits of wonderful.

This looks like a new way for you to work--and it is looking very good and with lots of possibilities.
