First I want to thank you for the nice comments and emails on my red and green appliqué. It is overwhelming. I am impressed !!
Thank you! :-)))
It was such an enjoyment and fun to make the quilt , that I decided to go for an another appliqué :-)
I want to make a four block with huge blocks and a very wide border with a vase and long vines with flowers . My first idea was to use a blue background. ( the blue in the picture is more bright than in reality ) but.........
when I ironed some prewashed fabrics ( that is another story ) I saw this on my ironing board... THAT is the perfect background for my new appliqué.
so for two days I was looking in my books and I came by this block. This is my inspiration ! So I grab my paper with my scissors and start cutting.. It is so fun to do ! Really you have to try it :-)
...........see it need some practice, I had to cut the feathers many times before I was satisfied :-)
I decide to use the colors as in a solid red and green... one green fabric for the leaves and stems one red fabric for the flowers etc.etc.. I want to give this quilt the same character as a red and green appliqué only with prints. I love the background and I am happy that I have enough for this quilt. ( I bought it when I visited Bonnie, good memories :-)
mmm I can already imagine four blocks of these !
ps.. the pieces are not sewn on the background. You see them with seams.
