Whimsical Wonder

This one was completed in June of 2010, but was kept in hiding till after a jury selection process was completed.  

The huge flower is all 3D, and it has a ricrac center.   It took forever to make all the petals.   Attaching it was quite an ordeal, as it had to be strong enough to hold all those petals up.   Yet was too thick for a sewing machine to go through, so they were all attached individually by hand.

There are buttons in the background surrounded by free motion quilted flowers and then coloured over.
