Pieced, Raw Edged Fused Applique,
With another huge snowstorm dropping about 14 inches of snow on us just when we could see a bit of grass, I decided to spend the day in my studio working on the flowers to complete my pieced background. To solve the problem of the H's (see previous post) I fused over them. Bet you can't find them now!
I wanted the dead heads, stems and leaves to come in and out of the background while the flowers
were the center of attention. I wanted that lush spring green feel with the sense of sunlight peaking through the foliage. I think I accomplished that.
When I do a lot of quilting I like to take breaks and begin another piece. So I fused this background together. This one will be titled "Reflection".
I have not put the foreground pieces on yet. but I am happy with it so far.
