Amaryllis-Love It Or Leave It


The amaryllis wall quilt is finished. ( See previous post.) I painted the background with Liquitex acrylics. The paint is just transparent enough to let the first background show through so the green is mottled.  I finished it letting the petals stick out around the edges and satin stitching all around the outer edge. All that green and red is a little too Crhistmasy. I don’t love it but it’s better than it was.  I’m leaving it. Onward to better stuff, I hope.
