Another project on the go. Following on from my first smaller piece using a similar pattern, this is set to become a queen sized summer quilt for our bed. I love the freshness of the greens, each piece, albeit it a leaf or petal appliqued on by hand, roll stitched around the edges. They will be joined in panels from top to bottom, one long vine, with yet another contrasting green stem to join each pairing of leaves from top to bottom. Between each vertical panel there will be white spacing panel and a broad frame around the external edge in the same fabric as the stems, which may well tie into the backing. Binding, who knows.

It's very laborious, but I find it so pleasing and such relaxing work. Clearly I'll need quite a few panels, around 18 from memory, so it will keep me busy for quite some time.
