Scraplicious Florabunda

It is done!  Introducing Scraplicious Florabunda!
The scrappy aqua blue flowers has turned out beautiful, and is definitely one I'm super proud of.  The random piecing (click here to see how) evolved into a wonderful flower display, and the addition of the quilting makes me say WOW.  This will hang in a place of honor in my house for a long time.

Below are LOTS of detail pictures.  I hope the page doesn't take forever to load!  First up, the feather border, with scribbling to help define those feathers.
And my McTavishing with pebbles as the background fill.
Quilted in some leaves--every flower needs leaves!

And the just as beautiful back.


Two layers of batting and glide thread in bright neon green, navy blue, and yellow were used on this quilt.  The next post, I'll go over how I did those gorgeous feathers!

Until then, Happy Quilting!
