R received a gift of olive green fabric and some cones of embroidery threads which I wanted to include in this piece. I used a bendable ruler to mark the shape and to go around the roses where i added some feathers. In most of my FMQ pieces, when not practice pieces, I usually have the thread color blend in, but after watching Cindy's lessons on the Superior Threads site, regarding the purple quilt, I thought I would try this green thread for the square and pebbles around it. I love the threads!
I also FMQ-ed heart shapes around the little white daisy's to help them stand out more on their own. Using more peach thread, I did a second square around the green one then added feathers, following up with peach pebbles around the open weave work that matched the original little circle embroidery on the piece.
A few coats of a fabric finish (scotch guard) to the seat, (it may help preserve the fabric from staining) it is now complete.
I do believe it is time for tea.
Thank you Cindy ~ wish you were here in New England to join me...
