The quilt was made using scraps of fabric and a large piece of white cotton. It is machine quilted using the free motion stippling technique. I purposely only quilted in the large white sections so the coloured strips would pop out a bit from the background, and they do. Although hard to see in the pictures.
I think I am in love with jumbo ric rac! It is used in all three stems. You will notice that I brought the stems right over the binding, I wanted to see what look it would create. The two flowers on the outside are made from zippers with an adorable pull tab in the centre. The middle flower is made using my scrap 'n' slash technique. Of course that is what gives the quilt it's 3D appearance.
I have shown a before I added the embellishment shot. As I know some people would like it just like that.
Here are the pictures of the finished quilt. I have also included some close ups of the flowers, which I adore in every way possible!
And please don't forget to give me a vote, by clicking on the bright flower at the top of the right hand side bar, only 5 more days left to vote. Thanks!
