A Flower Cloth - in progress ....

Inspired by Christi Beckmann's article in the Quilting Arts Magazine Issue 50, I decided to have a go at making a Flower Cloth.  I already have quite a few pieces of dyed (in a coffee jar) fabric, so I decided on a brightly coloured piece, then stamped it, stencilled and sprayed it, drew on it etc., sandwiched it up and started to stitch it.  I've done some more work on it since I took this picture.

So far I have only quilted the top third, but it is coming along nicely, so I thought I'd share it with you.  The piece is approximately 15" x 33" and below are some closeups of the finished bits, so far.





Lots more to do, but I am rather enjoying the process, and will keep you posted as I progress.
Till next time .........

I can't wait to see it again Val - it's beautiful and the colours are glorious. You should send a pic of it to Quilting Arts - they'd love it too.
