The background is thread-painted, then filled in with free motion quilting. The petals and leaves were thread-painted on a fused base with two layers of fabric, then cut out and applied using free motion stitching. The centers were hand-beaded. I do all my free motion quilting and thread painting on a 1930s treadle sewing machine. More details are on my blog.

  1. Forget-me-nots are some of my favorite flowers from childhood, so I had to click on this pic.I love the way the flowers in the background are just quilted, with the ones in the foreground being more solid. Adds a lot of depth to the work. Would love to see some details of the piece.

    Great job!
