Introducing Marilyn's Flowers.
Finished, and a big sigh. I do love it. The outer border is polyester! I know, but it is vintage and was given to me by a church member and I fell head over heels in love with it. I had it for a year before I could figure out a design that would work with it. It would have been tricky to piece and I didn't want to take away from the flow of it.
There is no stippling, but all free motion quilting using various designs. And all done on my little machine that I am really noticing has a very small space between the arm and the needle! I need to win a few prizes to upgrade to my dream machine - Janome 7700.
It is not hanging nice at the moment, as I have a dowel in the top rather than a flat board. But I had to take pics of it to show you so couldn't wait. When I take pics for jurying purposes, it will look nicer.
You can see that my flowers are 3D and the centre has a funky little button in each.
