What’s Working on Wednesday

Since Spring just isn’t getting here fast enough I chose a flower theme for my Quilt Day challenge piece.

          Creations 278

I started with a pieced background and added a stem and a few leaves.

          Creations 279

I stitched them down with Gutermann embroidery thread and my Bernina. Hadn’t done this in years so I took a little while for me to get comfortable with the process again.

Next I added lots of lavender petals.

         Creations 282

On the petals I did a few outline stitches and then with a deep purple thread I randomly added little scribbles.

         Creations 286

Next I added the pot and since we had to include a circle, I added a red one.

         Creations 287

The challenge was to make a piece at least 12 x 12 using purple, green and yellow and to include a circle. Looks like I covered all the bases. I don’t know how I’m going to finish this yet, but I’ll work on it later this week.

I’m linking up with Quiltsy and WIP Wednesday.
