Quilt Base: This is an old curtain lining, stamped with text and over printed with large swirls. I also painted and printed on some bondaweb, and once dry, ironed onto the curtain lining. I machine embroidered flowers, a tree branch and a flower stem over the fabric to create my base.
Large flower and bird motifs: These are made from old pj's and layered with some scrap fabric pieces, and machine appliquéd onto the base.
Words LOVE and small hearts and flower center: These are made from fabric paper. I layered pink and red tissue over some cotton fabric, using watered down PVA as the adhesive. I then dry brushed some ink over the crinkles to add another dimension. I hand stitched beads onto the hearts and flower centre.
Words 'grows here' and flower stems: hand stitched.
I hope you enjoy this quilt as much as I enjoyed designing and making it.
I do, Louise! It is really wonderful. Thank you for participating, especially from overseas.
