Special Delivery

Florals aren't really my favorite subject, but that's the point of a challenge, right? So I dove in and used abstract art as my genre. The vase fabric was in my stash, and after twisting and turning it, I found that it had the highlights printed into it that I thought I would have to add with stitching. The background is an older Wyland undersea print that had all the right lines for echo quilting. This was a fun piece, and I really am thinking of doing another! Size is 18"x24", maybe a bit less.

What perfect fabric for the vase and the quilting is very effective. This definitely has an abstract feel to it. The colors you chose are wonderful. A very nice piece.

great balance. Using blue for the flowers really makes the pot the center of attention. I love it.
