A Little Quiltie
There isn't any theme for our swap on Unlimited Textiles this month so I rummaged though my stash to see what would inspire me.
I found a piece of dress velvet. It has a gorgeous feel with little sequins on it. The print is in shades of pinks. From the lightest shell pink to deepest maroon. A very rich fabric indeed.
There in my images was this lovely lady with flowers the same colour as my fabric! I found some lace in the same colour ways and this little quilt was started.
I had some pink metal roses that seemed perfect and added some beading down the side of the image.
"Smell the Roses" journeyed off to Jill who liked her.
I have been doing a lot of abstract things just recently so it was a good exercise to go back to using images again.
