QUILTIE SWAP

Here is a pic of the quiltie I sent to Di over in England. It was for a quiltie swap I took part in. I crazy-patched the block and mostly free-embroidered the Aussie wildflowers using DMC threads,silk ribbon and some of my hand-dyed rayon thread which is very similar to an Edmar thread. I think the waratah flower turned out the best, being bullion wraps over a felt centre. The hardest to depict, I found was the kangaroo paw, which turned out a little bulky, but I guess it's still recognisable (AT least I hope it is)LOL
Comments:
Helen your embroidery is exquisite as usual!
I have found the kangaroo works well with bullion stitching and thick silk thread.
 
Great block Helen, the Aussie flowers ar so realistic.
