I was inspired by Annie's inspirational way of using color and texture in her painting of nature. She has a wonderful spirit that comes across in her paintings.
Annie uses a free motion style with loads of color and texture. I used my own hand dyed fabric and explored free motion quilting in my little garden quilt. I noticed some of her paintings have words, so I found this as the perfect opportunity to hand embroidery (which I love).
The center of the flower is hand made piping which I rolled into the circle and then added beads for sparkle and texture.
I'm hoping I inspire my garden to "grow". (My thumb isn't green, but I try) This project has definitely inspired me to grow in creativity.
My husband made a beautiful holder for the quilt to be in the garden. He's a wonder with metal. Visit his Facebook page for Duck Creek Design.
