Garden Lady #7 - Part 6 - FINAL

This is a continuation of 5 previous posts about the making of Garden Lady #7.

On some of my other art quilts, I made the decision to quilt the background before applying the flowers, but this time I decided to machine applique the flowers and it is easier to do this when you're only dealing with the top, and not all of the batting and backing.  So, the quilting was done when all of the pieces were done being appliqued.

I used several colors of thread and changed the direction of the quilting to make it look more like foreground and sky.  Of course, I had to add a few birds like I did on other quilts.  And, after it was quilted, I added a few hot fix crystals.

It is 39" W x 51" H.  I decided to call it "Picking Daisies".

I hope you like it!
