This month’s 12×12 quilt challenge in my Art2quilt group theme is flower. For this challenge the quilter is able to create any type of flower quilt using any kind of method; be it appliqué, fabric painting, thread painting, and so on. I decided to try my hand at ribbon embroidery. I watched a YouTube video found here ➡️ https://youtu.be/coWAlsXsGVs.
Originally, I wanted to add all types of flowers but quickly discovered that pulling ribbon through a 3 layered quilt is impossible! Next time I will do the ribbon embroidery then add it to the quilt.
The types of flowers I chose to use were the types I could thread to the top of the quilt.
I beaded the centers of the red flowers to kind of resemble poppies.
For the quilt pattern, I just free motioned the design of the fabric. I chose a gold leaf fabric for the boarder. This piece reminds me of the book “Memoirs of a Geisha”, which is one of my all-time favorite books.
I’m very happy with how this piece turned out. 😊
