Dandelions


Since the last post, I’ve turned thebackground fabric 90∘and like it better. Then moved the apron and blouse toward the center. Now what will the apron “arms” do? I thought about butterflies, bubbles, and have settled on dandelions.

I’ve quickly sketched a dandelion on tracing paper and pinned it in the upper left corner.

Not sure How I will depict it but some inspiration will come along. So many possibilities. Machine embroidery, hand embroidery, silk screen, applique and embroidery. Ummmmm.

And then in the top picture you see a table runner pinned to the bottom. Those flowers along the borders look too much like dandelions making it impossible not to incorporate it some way. You might think it’s too pretty to cut up, but there are stains and besides, think of it as a beautiful piece of cloth instead of as a finished product.

    I love the quilt and how it is telling you what to do! See we just have to be still, leave things alone and they will talk to us.
