What materials did you use? This was my first "project" after practicing feathers and scribbles. I used a 10 inch wreath template with a partial template for the corner designs. The fabric is basic muslin. Batting recipe: bamboo/cotton with 1/2 layer of Hobbs wool batting. Design is quilted with 70 wt poly quilting thread, cream. Background was stitched with 40 wt poly, celery green. While "scribbling" I practiced feathers and ribbon candy designs. What fun!!!

What are you most proud of? My husband said he would like to see this practice piece framed after it is finished!

Gosh - this is lovely! I'd be delighted if I could do a practise piece that looked like this. Definitely needs to be on display!

I just bought a wreath template and found a remnant of dupioni silk. You have given me confidence and inspiration to try it. Beautiful work.

I love how your wreath just pops off the surface of the quilt. Very beautiful piece!
