Flowers! These are applique vintage stumpwork stars, and I thought they'd make great flowers. The centers are pom-poms, and the vines are braided yarn. It is 24" square, and I started it in the Sue Spargo retreat last fall in Sisters. The applique is almost done, and then I will quilt and finish it over the weekend.
I'm thinking about quilting it in emerald green pearl cotton, big stitches, something basic to unify the background a bit. Lulu is very interested in what I'm doing! She loves yarn!
