In my free-time this weekend I worked on the embroidery for the Quincy Quilt. I wanted to add a few flower accents to the baby quilt I am making for a friend.
I based the flowers loosely on the border fabric (see below). I used three different shades of (DMC Thread) lavender to give the petals dimension. I add a little yellow center and a few simple stems and leaves.
Four sweet flowers in each of the corners.
Each flower is unique and different....no two were embroidered the same. The leaves and stems as well. Because this is her fifth baby and fourth girl, I wanted to make the four flowers represent the new baby with her three big sisters.
