Sneak Peak

 

I have been working on a new quilt in my series, wild flowers on the Appalachian Trail. I love these small Bloodroot flowers that appear very early in the spring. The quilt is large, about 84 inches wide by 64 inches high, so this is just a small section. I have quilted the background in the squares and I am thinking about how I want to quilt the appliqué. I hope machine quilting lines will further define the petals. When white petals overlap white petals, it’s hard to get visible contrast. I wanted to keep the flowers white, and not use much off-white or beige-y fabric. My friend Cheryl gave me some fabric that has great texture and is bright white. The fabric is scraps leftover from tablecloth manufacture! It isn’t cotton but I don’t care, I won’t be sleeping under this wall tapestry and the fabric is doing the job I want it to do. I’m so glad I have well connected friends!
