Q&A with littlee71

Stevia asked:
Very beautiful. I would love to know how you did this.
littlee71 answered:
I cut flowers and leaves from several different fabrics, and made a collage of them. I placed some sequins, and then I layered tulle over the whole piece, and made my quilt sandwich. I used the machine embroidery technique know as thread painting over the flowers and leaves. I trimmed the tulle away from the background and stippled the background. When I had finished all the machine work, I did beading, candlewick knots and hand embroidery. I'm glad you like it; thank you.
