To Quilt the Wave Floral Garden

I finished piecing the top yesterday. It is slow going because I am creating a video tutorial for it. I am creating many short videos as I work, trying not to miss any of the steps in the act of creation. I would rather take more videos than less.

Sometimes a part of the technique that seems obvious or easy to me might not seem so to a student. So I am questioning myself as I go along. I also liike to share my thoughts of the process as I work. My tutorials are for techniques and not for patterns. So there is no preset structured system by which to work.

If I were just creating for myself it would be easy. But I have to stop and ask myself how to explain the process to someone who is not familiar with it.

Creating the videos is also a learning curve for me as a teacher and as I always tell my students "Practice makes perfect" .

It took me a while to decide how to quilt it and to choose the thread colors.

The background will be quilted with the purple thread .

These three colors will be used to quilt the petals of the flowers. This time I found all 3 colors in my collection of threads.

Spools of light pink, dark pink and orange threads
