The flowers are done without fusible, a technique I use in so many situations. They are imaginary but remind me of flowers I like. I don't let reality get in my way too often.
I obviously liked metallic thread from the start. Actually I used old time metallic thread with cotton through the eye of my hand quilting needle on my third bed quilt back in the 80's. Hard core!
I love flowers, and find their colors infinitely deep and mysterious. I study them, seeing shades of yellow, gold, orange, pink and white in a seemingly yellow flower. It is exciting.
I am currently working on this year's quilt. I printed out the haiku, love it, but the ink didn't set on the fabric well this time. I tried painting over it, but now it might be too messy looking. I need to get a move on, y'all.
I am drawn to the Olympics curling and skating coverage though...
