Well, that's it! I think I've finished sewing all the flowers on my denim garden. I'll leave it for a few days before I get it ready for quilting. When I see it with fresh eyes I'll most likely see things that need tweaking, something added or removed. A thought crossed my mind that quilt made with pieced blocks has an obvious finish line, but with applique there's the temptation to add just a little bit more. 

I've really enjoyed creating flowers with shapes and colours and adding personality with perle 8 thread.  Wool felt is a joy to work with, so easy to cut out a shape and simply sew it in place. Sewing through denim seams was trying at times and the result is imperfect stitches but you know me, I like a bit of wonkiness in my quilts.
