This week I have worked to finish the applique using stemmed french knots in flourescent green. Once that was done, I needed to work out a quilting pattern.
At such times I make samples, ie audition several approaches, as in the lower image. I worked black and hot yellow options in fine thread in the centre of the collaged images below.
I wanted to use the yellow, but the effect was nothing special. The best result was the very fine black free machine embroidered motif echoing the corona virus molecule. Even with all the practice I did, it wasn’t easy to make them very small, but I am at least achieving a variety of sizes 🙂
