Dream Big

I bought a couple of these panels last summer when they were on sale at Urban Elementz. I finally loaded one on the frame.

I soon learned that nearly outlining those petals is harder than it looks.

This is the first thing I’ve quilted in over a month and I felt rusty. I used two layers of batting for extra definition. I’m hoping I’ll like it better when it’s done. It is definitely better at a bit of a distance.

Have a great day!

    I like Quiltpatti’s advice. I almost always have to wait until after it’s done awhile to judge it I got that same panel at that sale. I love what you’re doing.

    I saw those monster flowers in the Keepsake catalog that came yesterday. Seeing your photos gives me a better idea of the scale! I like your intricate quilting design.
