Aiming for "Country French"

This is the first stage of a wall piece I am working on using the instructions from the latest issue of Quilting Arts magazine. My color scheme is based on a piece of "Country French" style fabric. I think I need a little more red, but I'm happy with the design so far. So far, so good!

The image is abstracted from a photo of a vase of gerbera daisies -- cutting out each individual blossom took me all afternoon! Thankfully, I had the whole house to myself today, and all the housework and bills caught up, so I had freedom to really play.

The next step will be to add free-motion machine stitching. That's going to be fun, but will have to wait until tomorrow. My back and eyes aren't up for any more close work today.

SUCH pretty & cheerful colors, Judi! I hope you'll show it all finished! How big is it going to be? And I'm still hoping to see the finished oil paintings you were working on! See? I haven't forgotten! LOL!
