The last flower embroidery for "My Ravel quilt" is completed.


I worked on the center red flower forever.  First I ironed on a layer of metal organza and outlined it with red metallic thread and black 15mm beads.  Next I embroidered 2 separate layers of tulle with the jagged outline of the flower and cut them out.  Then I outlined the center shape of the flower on velvet with 18mm metal faceted beads and cut it out. Finally I built a flower sandwich.

I have 3 more small solid circles to embroider  plus the motifs to complete before I can start assembling.
See the label "My Ravel" to see the rest of the designs.

This is just wonderful!! The extra effort on that central flower really paid off. She's a stunner. And I think my favorite part is those tendrils with a few beads thrown in here and there. This is a fave for sure.
