The flower is outlined with embroidery and filled in with water
colour pencils. The quilting is McTavishing style, done by hand.
In the photo I have the quilt pinned to the blocking board. The hand quilting made the piece a little wonky, so I spritzed it with water and pinned it out square and flat. When it was dry it was lovely and flat. I think I will block my quilts more often!
Made for the Quilting Gallery's Good Ole Summertime Mini Quilt Swap. My assigned partner rarely blogs and is not active in the Flickr groups, so I don't have a good sense of how she will react to this piece. I tried to follow her tastes, as much as I could figure out.
Cross fingers she likes it!
