Were you getting tired of looking at my cabbage quilt? I thought I'd better put up something new. I did make another small quilt over the weekend, but it's for a challenge and I can't show it yet. But this one, I can. I wanted to make another quilt for the "Common Object, Uncommon View " challenge. Last year I took a lot of Macro shots (very close up) in my garden. This is the center of a Purple Coneflower printed out four times on fabric. You can see a picture of a whole, but different, Purple Coneflower here. I did not change the color, but did take it into Photoshop Elements to posterize it. I must say that I like the sunny, happy hues in this. It's rather small, only about 20 x 20, since I have to work with my printer that only prints 8 1/2 x 11. Maybe I'll get a bigger printer some day. I'm not sure how I'll quilt it, but would like to take advantage of those wonderful curving lines that Nature provided. I'm also searching for a name. Any suggestions?
What I really want to do is make a big quilt out of just one flower center and do it in applique. Stay tuned to see if I really accomplish it.
