My guild has a family social and a challenge every year the first Tuesday in August. This year the challenge is to make a 16 inch square mini quilt.
Several years ago I made this little wall hanging. It is too small to use in the challenge, but I liked at the idea.
So I pulled some batiks out and stated a new vision.
Larger flower petals. I have increased the pattern size to 200%.
And a nice layout of the pattern.
Once adhered I sewed around all the petals and leaves very close to the edges with closely matching thread colors.
And now for some out lining with 12wt threads on leaves.
And petals. I do need a very small circle of gold fabric in the center of the petals and lots of thread work to make a fuzzy little center. After that some quilting, probably straight lines diagonally in both directions on the off white background. I do have a pretty patterned batiks to use for a small border or maybe a wider binding that will serve as border and binding. Its not complete, but well on its way in plenty of time for the August event.
