I've had lots of visitors today, so the work has been spasmodic. I finished the thread illustration on the flower and you will note that I've taken it out of the background...(the top petal and the stem) it gives a 3 dimensional effect.
Now I'm quilting the background following my computer manipulation guides. The watermarks will be left with no quilting in them (I think)
I will cut some of the leaves from the final background fabric and soften the edges of the piece by appliqueing them over the picture.
I think I will make 2 free standing aggy leaves which will cross on the right hand side of the quilt. Its a bit hard to explain... but just keep watching.
