A Floral Garden
I worked with my new fragments quilting technique today.
The first thing I do when planning a new project is to choose a color family from my scrap boxes. Today I chose a spring palette.
I lay the strips of fabric down on the table and then choose the embellishments.
My normal mode of operation is to work without embellishments and just create a quilted abstract piece. I wanted to do something different today.
I also chose complementrary threads.
I started working and created an abstract piece which was pleasing to the eye and also added a few embellishments using some torn lace pieces.
I almost left it like this. I like it a lot but I am forcing myself to do something a little different today.
When sorting through my stash of lace and upcycled floral appliques I found these small purple flowers and they are perfect for the quilted piece.
I added a few randomly and now it feels like spring.
" I glanced out the window and saw pale pink fragments of spring, at last, the grey season is gone..."
