There is a wall in the living room of Hermosa Castille
that begs for a Queenie quilting adventure.
The story begins this summer when Honey Man and I purchased a couple of vintage side chairs for in front of the wall in question. For the seats of these sweet chairs, someone had lovingly created needle point seat covers.
Just the old-timey floral jumping off point for Queenie's imaginative flight of fancy
for this quilting adventure.
As you know I love Love LOVE flowers.
A peek-a-boo, snap shot of an imaginary garden
at Hermosa Castille would be a choice setting indeed.
First up the background upon which the garden will grow.
Next, the creation of imaginary floral applique elements
in colors all their own.
Full blown blossoms down to wee baby buds...
And greenery galore.
With growing stacks of garden elements in hand,
The laying out and arranging began.
This particular layout was most pleasing
at this stage of this quilting adventure.
(sprinkled liberally with pondering and conjuring)
Queenie decided each little element needed a touch of dimensionality. So, I decided on stuffing each with a layer of batting to create a wee pillow effect for each applique.
Queenie's now nursing a blister on the royal right thumb
from all the tracing, trimming, and stuffing
of wee bits of batting for each dainty piece.
Ahhhh the suffering one must endure for great art! –lol-
Till next time…Have a great day!
