Quilt art update 5th April

So, have done some more work on my art quilt, decided that as well as a adding another large flower a bud would look good. Had already dyed some green fabric that looked good against the red. The photo shows some embroidery on the red. I fused the dyed fabric pieces onto calico to give them stability so that I could embroider without using a hoop.

The photo below shows the poppy bud pinned to the patchwork background, I won’t be stitching anything in place until all the pieces are completed and I’ve decided the final composition. Sorry about the differences in colour the photo below is truer representation of the colour.
