This fantastic variation has a rich silver vase and a variety of greens in the leaves and stems.
Isn't it wonderful?
I love the background print too.
Now for a little detail - I know of you are quilting as you go, and others of you are looking ahead to quilting.
This is a detail of Esther's original vase.
Note how close her vase is to the binding.
Amazing tiny quilting stitches.
Speaking of quilting...how about the quilt as you go makers?
Isn't this wonderful hand quilting?
All echo quilting like Esther.
Maybe another reason to start a second version?
How about adding some vintage embellishments?
Buttons, tatting - adding some flowers in the quilting?
Checkout the bow and the flowers!
So rich on the dark hand dyed ground fabric.
Esther has about 12 flowers and buds in her bouquet.
Some quilters are choosing to use less flowers in their bouquet , and other's prefer to create a much fuller arrangement.
Notice the quilter of this block added flower buds to replace the upper leaves in her arrangement.
