Last summer while browsing through yard sales, I got this pile of material for 50cents. I thought they were just scarps. When I got home and untied the bag I discovered that were petty petals of soft shades. Some of them were already tacked !
There are two kinds of petals...and lots of them. [I never counted ]
I wanted make a quilt using these but did not want to venture into a large project as I did not know how I would fair. Instead made this smaller one. I also found this guide which has information helpful for a beginner like me.
Rest of the fabric I used are from yard sales/thrift shops.
- I don't think that these shapes were meant to be used in a flower, as I have done so. I just wanted try something different.
I did applique flower/and quilting by hand. I used the help of the machine to join the blocks.
I am left handed :)
- ... that when piecing geometrical shapes [and the intention was to make a straight line], the measurements have to be precise, otherwise the results will be like this.............
- ....my hand quilting stitches are not even.. should they be? [i need to read on that]
- ....I should have chosen fabric with similar weave, it was difficult pull the needle through the blue fabric which is used around flowers blocks
Finally, I managed to finish it with lessons learnt and more to learn;
Thank you for stopping,
Until next project,
