Simply Summer

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The realism of the flowers and, of course, my sons pottery vase! What advice would you give someone starting this project? This project was constructed in stages. The background was placed on a piece of foundation and then the flowers and vase were assembled separately and then placed on the background.

What you will need

  • Photo
  • Tracing Paper
  • Pellon
  • Various Cotton Fabrics
  • Fabric Glue
  • Clear and Colored Threads for quilting and thread art.

Q&A with merry o

Wendy Lee asked:
I love your work. I have cone flowers in my landscaping we put in last summer. Perhaps I can do my front of my house and all the landscaping with it....
merry o answered:
Thank you! Naturescapes are my favorite . . . all the colors and textures are fun to work with!
Wendy Lee asked:
To tell you the truth, I meant to add to my comment is this, I really couldn't tell the photo from your work, that's how nice it is! I like Naturescapes as well, and I am trying my hand at portraits.
merry o answered:
I have one other portrait quilt I've done besides the one of Craftsy . . . I'll add it. Faces are a challenge!
