...that I should be working on this piece this weekend...
|Posh Poppies - (C) Chi-Chi Quilt Designs|
This afternoon, I'll be stitching on the skinny stems, tacking down portions of leaves that had to be re-positioned, and layering the piece with batting only for some gentle shadow quilting around those leaves and stems. The piece is going to be framed by the owner, rather than hung as a quilt, so the batting will be very thin.
After the quilting, the poppy blossoms and buds will be attached. This includes thread painting and beading on the blossoms for stamens and pistils. Then tiny off-white sateen flowers will be scattered about on the right side of centre, attached by hand, and the piece will be finished.
While I link up to Nina Marie's Off-the-wall Friday...
Have yourselves a peaceful weekend...
and take time
Beautiful poppies....my fav flower :)
It is coming along nicely!
Gosh, I'm slow. I hit post and then realized poppies for remembering! :) very fitting!
great poppies, are they 3-D or just look that way? We have a local VA hospital and they are always selling little red poppies for memorial day and Veterans day.
Yes, very fitting and just lovely.
The piece is coming along beautifully... lovely work!
