From Inspiration to Completion 4
I am continuing the quilting on the leaves. The tiny circles are completed on the silk portions of each leaf. Veins were added to the center of the leaves and down the stems.
The background was enhanced with echo- quilting, outlining and popping out each leaf. Additional leaves were quilted in the "empty" sections of the background. This serves two purposes. First, to add extra detail (that may be only seen upon close inspection) and second, to keep the texture continuous over the quilt (helping the quilt to lay flat).
