This morning I've been working on my own flower picture for the Quilt University class - Flower Power.
First I started out with appliqueing a light pink fabric to the base using UDA (upside-down applique).
Then I overlaid that with a slightly darker pink fabric.
Stitch it down upside-down.
And then cut the outside away very close to the stitching.
This still doesn't look like much, does it?
And here we add another piece.
Slowly it's taking on a form.
A little snip of yellow.
And some machine embellishing.
More free-motion work with variegated thread.
Now there are just some yellow beads to add and voila!
