Fantasy Flowers Finished !

As promised I worked hard and got my flower project completed.

I know it's completely over the top but it is an experimental piece and I was enjoying playing around with the fabrics.


I used a variety of buttons and beads for the flowers.


Don't forget you can click on the photos for even bigger close ups.


I 'borrowed' the fuzzy ball centers of the peachy flowers from my daughters Easter bonnet craft kit.



Couldn't resist adding this cute little ladybird button:





I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out and I think some elements of this could be used in the making of a bed quilt.  I already have some ideas in my head.


The surprising thing about this is how much it weighs - it's pretty heavy!

I hope you enjoyed my post today and I'd love for you to leave me a comment.
I have disabled word verification on my blog as I know it puts me off leaving comments on others - only becasue I can hardly read the words. Sometimes they are so distorted - drives me nuts!

Linking up with Color Me Quilty.

Have a relaxing weekend - I hope it is filled with lots of sewing!
See you next time.
Rhianon.

I have always loved the tactile nature of quilting - I find it hard to buy fabric online because not only do I want to see it, I need to touch it lol! Your flower quilt is taking this to a new level, I just want to reach in and FEEL them! And as usual, I love your quilting!!!

Carrie - help! When I click on your name, it says page unavailable - how do I get to your blog ?

Outstanding! Not over the top at all when you look at the piece as a whole - it's a gorgeous wall hanging with so much dimension and interest. Hope you'll be entering this in some shows. Your work is always gorgeous - so much to learn from seeing how your design proceeds through a project.

You always do such beautiful work. My quilt is over on the gallery too. Not doing as good as yours but still I am pleased with the amount of votes it has gotten.

Nann said...

I found your blog via your Dresden entry in the Quilting Gallery contest. The Dresden quilt is beautiful but now I am in love with your flowers -- not the least of which is the the thistle in your blog header.

Anne said...

I just wanted to let you know how much I loved your Dresden quilt! It's just beautiful.
