This is a small wall hanging art quilt that I finished yesterday. I wanted to capture the beautiful colors of my Johnny Jump Ups that are blooming in my garden
I drew the patterns and cut them out of 100% white cotton. Each petal has a front and back and is lined with low loft batting. Once each petal was sewn and turned right side out, I hand painted them with dye so that each petal had it's own personality. I attached them to the black and white background with stitch witchery and glue. I added a few seed beads to look like the "dew" I saw the morning I took the photos. I added a backing and just stitched the front and back together and turned right side out. I plan to hang this in my Master Bath over my Jacuzzi Tub. I have decorated my bathroom to look like an English Country Garden. I think I will hang it up with ribbon connected to the two top corners.
