So I decided to start making some quilts based on my plants. I still have to stitch these and use some cool contrasting thread...sort of like thread painting. But, it's a start. 2 blocks to start with and to try a few techniques with;)

Maybe auction items for the forum...just a thought. (Pillow appliques?)

So, I know it's been ages since I posted this. But, I finally got them done. I will most likely frame them and find homes for them. Sorry for the lighting and stray threads...it's very overcast here today.

These are beautiful. Can you enter them in the arts division of a local orchid show?

Probably. Though I'd be up against a painter and a photographer from my local society and they probably wouldn't win. But, who needs more ribbons anyway! That's actually a good idea, thanks.

And thanks for all the encouragement. I think in the future I'll do more but do them with darker backgrounds.

Wow! One year's labor. I hope I dont have to buy those! $$$
They sat as UFO's(unfinished objects) all this time. And since they're not phrags they shouldn't tempt you:poke: Maybe the next one will be a phrag...hmmm...
