Lovely Larkspurs

August was the month to share a (member) tutorial on 3D larkspurs, as part of our Dimensional Flower BOM series. Normally I post the technique, with step-by-step photos of the process. Then there are times such as this one that I feel compelled to complete a project with the finished samples. So today I “threw” this mini-quilt together.

I started out making the background with my favorite collage technique. I use all kinds of small scraps, thread, ribbons… whatever is lying around at a given moment.

I use decorative stitching to hold all the pieces down and quilt the piece at the same time.

It is best to quilt the piece first, before adding dimensional elements.

I just love the way this little project turned out. Finished size is 6 x 8 inches.

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
