This is progress so far on my quilt kit win. You might notice that I have made a couple of fabric substitutions/swaps. Hope that is OK with Sue who sent me this lovely giveaway :) We all do this don't we - to suit our taste or decor ideas? I've introduced more red.
This is the picture on the kit - the blue is lovely too but in this instance I want less blue:
|The picture of the quilt on the kit - more blues used|
The part I loved the most was doing the broderie perse - such a good fabric line for this. Just look at these two - with the holes where I chopped out flowers and leaves:
|Flowers cut out of the large scale floral|
|Flowers cut out of the red floral column|
|Initial layout of fabric for broderie perse - 12 fabrics tacked down|
|Version Two - moved a flower, added leaves..|
|Version Three - added a flower and more little leaves - happy now!|
Only small changes ...bit like flower arranging really.
Here are a couple of closeups of the broderie perse. Lucky for me the background fabric blended pretty well with the background of the large scale floral (thanks Froncie Quinn fabric designer!):
I have just a couple of borders to go to finish the top - not a large quilt. It should make a good wall hanging I'm thinking..
