Back to that piece of fabric!!! Sometimes we buy fabric because we fall in love with it. I fell in love with this piece and purchased two metres of it. Wrong wrong wrong. That's the problem with buying just one piece of fabric. I should have purchased others from the same range.
It has sat in my cupboard for the past two years and I have found it hard to match other fabrics to it. I did managed to find a green spot and while digging through my scrap bag I found a small piece of pink with red flowers and I had some red on cream fabric I stole from another project. I begged a friend for a piece of green she had in her stash and finally had enough fabric for a project.
Now what to make???. Out came all the magazines and I searched my EQ6 for inspiration. In EQ6 I came across a vase of flowers I thought I could adapt to make a centre medallion.
I returned to EQ6 and played for a while with the fabrics and blocks. I came up with a simple design I hope will show off the red fabric.
After adapting the centre medallion and completing the appliqué I thought it was a little too plain with just 3 flowers, it needed something more. The vase is now full and I am happy with the end result.
The colours are muted but I think it is going to work and make the red shine.
