Quilted Flowers and Feathers - a work in progress.

I love it when the creative juices are flowing and you get carried away with a project that you hadn't even planned.
That is kinda what happened with this :



It was the border fabric that started it all.  I really liked the terracota and blue together.


I started with machine quilting  the flowers then added some feathers on a piece of cream silk.

I thought it looked a bit wishy washy and needed some colour.   So out came my Carron Dache pencils.

First the flowers....

Then the feathers.....

I still have to blend the colours and add some beading detail.

I'm linking this blog to Quilting By the River where Connie has a linky party every Tuesday.  Lots of inspiring eye candy to look at, so head on over and enjoy!

I'm having my own linky party for TGIFF on friday so be sure to come back and visit.  I have a major finish which I am itching to show you all.
Until then - have a great week.
Rhianon.
