More Roses

Here are some of the roses on the unfinished quilt I mentioned in a previous post:This is a "broderie perse" technique where the printed flowers are cut from a feature fabric and then stitched to the new background fabric. I've used a temporary spray adhesive and blanket stitches to hold the flowers down. I've avoided using vlieosfix because I'm planning to quilt this one by hand. I don't like the stiffness of the fabric produced by the iron-on adhesives. I think I mentioned this quilt has been in storage for a while--I'm noticing the creases in the shot I've taken. Oh well, it's not in storage now, so maybe it's a little closer to being finished, though I've done nothing but look at it since I hung it on the wall. I need to decide what size it will be and then choose a border or borders. When they're on it will be time to think about quilting it.

is that stitched by hand? That is so intricate. Must have taken you some time. Would love to see what you decide to do with it.

teeny tiny blanket stitches, though some of the roses aren't as neat as this one. Strangely, I love fine hand stitching--sometimes:)
