A Rose ... the Eternally Beloved

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The layering effect of the background fillers. I'm hoping it's good enough to enter into a small local competition. What advice would you give someone starting this project? When faced with a blank piece of fabric - dividing it up helps. I started with using a stencil for the roses, stitched the lines, then marked out the lines for the background.

What you will need

  • Vintage linen
  • wool batting
  • Japanese kimono crepe
  • cotton backing
  • silk thread
  • Invisafil thread

Q&A with Sberrymum

Deb Cavanaugh asked:
Photos are so hard. I want to see it in person. The overall effect is gorgeous but I would love to be able to touch all the wonderful texture in person. It only needs beads if they would please you. Congrats, it is so lovely
Sberrymum answered:
Thanks Deb and Cindy. I have painstakingly unpicked the initials and re-worked a better font. I have also placed a single pink pearl bead in the center of each rose - it's enough to give 'pop' and a little contrast to the white and green. Just loving working on the quilting on such a small size!
