I've finished the lilies for challenge No 15. The lilies are free standing.
I added batting and backing and first stitched around the edge with a mono filament thread. I use smoke on the top and a grey 50 weight cotton on the back of the quilt.
Free motion sewing, this image is of the back of the quilt.
The outline is in grey Mono filament. Then filled in with thread painting following the colors on the image.
I finished the edge with a small zig zag. 1.4 and 1.4 matching the colors.
Now for the leaf. !!!!!
These are images that I took in 2008 at the home of Frida Khalo.
I've created an applique from this image and used it for several projects.
…. then it will be completed
