You are invited to an exhibition of floral inspired art with live orchids in bloom. 
Winter's Garden
1200 Crosby Ave.
Stevens Point, WI

I am pleased that my art quilt "O- Water Lilies" will be part of the juried exhibit. You have been watching the progress of this piece on my blog and now you will be able to see it in person.

To make the three-dimensional petals, I fused two layers of fabric together and then stitched the petals on my machine using Superior Threads Glitter metallic thread in the needle.

I used matching pink cotton thread in the bobbin. I then cut close to the stitching to separate the petals.
These petals were added on to the center of the flowers.

  1. I had to do a double take to make sure the waterlilies were not 3 dimensional. Great job adding light and shadow to your piece. The blue background is perfect for this piece.

  2. Yes, the pieced blue ended up being a great background. Some petals of the waterlilies are three-dimensional and others at fused onto the background.
