May flowers

We’re only four days into May and I’ve already completed the sewing challenge for the month – twice! When I spoke to big sis earlier this afternoon, she admitted that she had also already completed two pieces!

I coloured the background fabric and the daisies with oil pastels before machine stitching the daisies but I can’t decide whether to quilt around the daisies or not – whatdya all think?

Yellow buttercups were the basis for the second piece on silk tinted with water soluble wax pastels.  The fabric around the flowers was puckered after machining them so I bit the bullet and quilted the whole thing but I think it’s ok.

    LOVE the daisies, and the buttercups, but those daisies! Did you decide to quilt around them or not?

      Thanks and I’m glad you’re still around! I haven’t quilted around the daisies yet! Been too busy playing around with other things but they’re on the wall above my sewing machine to remind me.
