Fire Flower

I'm always looking for beautiful pictures to inspire a quilt.  My husband took this photo of this stunning begonia and I decided to try to capture it.

Techniques: Painted on cotton. Border is a commercial print, with tiny confetti piping as an inner border. Cotton batting. Heavily quilted.

In the quilting process, I try to use a lot of thread to add texture and interest to the piece.  These are a selection of threads that I pulled out for this quilt.
