Pretty funky, huh? Makes me think of a rather wonky insect. (I'm reading Micro by Michael Crichton right now so I may have bugs on the brain.)
This first one I removed the color so it is "black and white".
This one shows just the free motion center. Notice this one is yellow...
This one shows a close up of one of the leaves...notice it is blue. The back was unbleached muslin but I took the picture at night-no flash- so the quilting would show up so I understand the yellow but blue? Where did that come from? I have to say the blue is a lovely shade and the quilting looks quite nice on it...I seem to have a very talented camera.
About the pattern: I enjoyed doing it. I found it was easier for me to do the center "vein" in the leaf first as an extension of the stem. I just curved it and then sewed over it and up to do the curve of the leaf. It just felt more natural for me. I think this would look really nice in a border.
