Bouquet on silk.... colored


Colored pencils, paints, and more quilting all add up to a good time.
I was pleased wth the first piece but wasn't sure where to go from there. Various comments on the first picture had me thinking, and it was sosososoooo pale.
Color me... color me...... it seemed to say. The neat part was that I had thread-painted the whole piece, and then to go and color was childs play, really. And silk... well, you've heard me say this before..yummy when it comes to quilting. Try it!
Let me know what you think.

Carole, I love the color that you added to this piece. Wonderful! It really came alive and vibrant.

Yes, the colors made a huge difference between the two versions. Even the quilting looks more interesting now!

The coloring adds so much. It was very pretty before and now it is beautiful.

Wow Carole, this piece has really came alive. The binding adds to the piece by highlighting the flower colors, great job!

Wow, the color you added has completely changed your quilt. It looks great.

Have you considered adding some stems below the water line?

It was good before, but it's great now. Nice job. The quilting really makes your design sparkle! My only critique would be the same as mentioned earlier - your stems stop before they get into the water of the vase.
