Making Spring Blooms #5

blooms7Like any fused art quilt, the improvised vignette quilt, Spring Blooms #4, is steam set to the batting before hand stitching. An even set of Blanket Stitches surround the blue flowers (the focal point) which are topped with a healthy dose of French Knots. (I’m using a Size 8 Pearl Cotton Thread with a Size 4 embroidery needle.) The Red Hots thread colorway repeats the same color spicy red in the wallpaper stripe.

For the leaves I’m using my version of the Fern Stitch. The thread is a Size 12 Pearl Cotton Thread in the Green Grass colorway with a Size 5 embroidery needle.

I must admit, hand embroidery really makes the quilt!
