Back To Work!

 I told MDH that today was going to be a full day in the studio no matter what!  So first I cleaned.  Then I began the construction of a sunflower for on one of my 12X12 backgrounds I made up weeks ago. 
 Next came the leaves.  I have a great fabric that does a lot of the work for you and for this small quilt I used it.  I sketch out the leaves on fusible and then I lay them strategically on the fabric thinking about direction and light and dark.
Woolah!  Still needs quilting but I am happy with it.

There are two more to go.  One will have poppies and one will have fish.  I always save all my sketches from previous quilts which I will use for these two.  I just change the fabric and freely add the petals or leaves during construction.  It is amazing how different they will look from the originals.

The fabrics really do work well with the sunflower. I have been collecting batiks and prints to use in art pieces, now i have to decide on something I can make.
