In response to Del’s question, I cut the pieces for the flowers with the centers from the lighter areas of the fabric. Then I added the detail in the center when I did the quilting. First with very pale blue thread which didn’t show up, then with darker blue. This is what you see in the last photo, but I still thought it needed more, so I added a few beads and now it is done!
Del, you BETTER finish yours! I’m anxious to see it. This isn’t a contest and everyone just needs to do a little piece to represent their “voice”.
