This time I wanted to play with painting it for a small composition....the project was for an upcoming episode of QNN TV's "Quilters Newsletter Workshop", airing in April of 2014. I just got back from taping it in Denver with the wonderful Jodie Davis.
So I started with some vintage blocks. You know me and vintage blocks, I'm in love.
These blocks gave me my palette.
I then went out to the garden to pick some flowers in the same colors, for painting inspiration.
You can tell, I was having a lot of fun!
When the laces were all painted, I arranged the bouquet on the background and sewed them on with my machine.
I liked it alot, but it still needed something.....
Of course! The stipple quilting really helped the bouquet and blocks pop out.
What a fun project! You'll be able to see a lot more about it when the Quilters Newsletter Workshop episode airs next spring.
