Thanks for linking my humble little blog!
I've been working on the sample quilt today, in between enjoying the semi-warm Canberra spring with the kids. It's looking good, I'm so glad I'm not testing out these methods on the main quilt - even though I'm not up to attaching petals to the background I'm still happier not testing on Soldier On yet.
It gives me the chance to make flowers on a few different angles, which is something I'm going to have to do in the main quilt.
I hung BarkLife at mum's place today to hang until it goes off to Geelong for Expressions, and spent ages thinking about the green parts and how they've been quilted. I think I can do something very similar with red wool and felt to create the petals.
