Okay, I had a couple days playin with my hubby. We did renew our vows yesterday. It was great fun... No nerves!
I'm on to finishing up my newer version of a magnolia blossom titled "Southern Grace."
With a much more simple outer background finish, it seemed to call for more thread work on the flower petals, so that's just what I'm doing.
The added richness of delicate value quilting seemed worthwhile to me.
I used a light weight (40 wt.) thread to keep the delicate feel to what in real life are velvet-like petals. Click on photo for detail view.
