Down to the last stretch!
Everything always looks a bit flat until I start quilting and adding dimension and delineation to the quilt. Trust me it will look better quilted! Each petal will be delineated better...and I shade with the thread as well. Thats the fun part...well...actually I love it all! I haven't decided whether to use metallic thread, coordinating thread,contrasting thread ...or what. I am thinking for sure metallic thread on the water ripples. Plus I am adding bead work on the water ripples as well. when it is all together I will haul it to the store to put threads on top of it to decide...Im cleaning it all up for today. I finished what I set out to do today. Tonight I am going to try to go to my first Madison Contemporary Fiber Artist Meeting in Madison at 6:30. After that, I am going to work out for an hour and 1/2 at the gym...reading time and to bed. A good day, productive and busy day!
