I started this quilt that night. The background is made of torn paper towels that I fused to peltex. I then covered it with cheesecloth that I sewed down. I love the look. The cheesecloth smoothed the background out and gave it a pinterly look. One of my friends in our art quilt group said it had a Monet look.
The flowers aren't attatched yet. The red ones and the leaves are made from some of my silk paper. The pink ones are paper towels.
Here's a close-up. I love the texture in the background.
I'm still thinking of how I'm going to sew down the flowers and leaves. I'm not sure what I will do for the center of the flowers. I think I'm going to use a combination of machine and hand stitching. I also want to couch down some yarn or various fibers. I'm also thinking of adding some embroidery to add to the texture of the background. Who knows!!
