Project Quilting 8.2

Hello Friends

This weeks challenge for Project Quilting 8.2 is Carolina Lily.  I knew I wanted to do something 3 dimensional.  I made the petals first using an orange peel template.  Then I made the leaves.  I just took two pieces of fabric with batting in the middle and sewed a leaf shape.  Then I cut out as close to the stitching as I could.
  Because I didn't want the batting to show, I used a brown marker to color in the batting.  Then I took a kitchen straw and covered it with fabric.  I made the stamen by curling brown wire and inserting it into the top of the straw. 
They are held in by hot glue.  While assembling I thought it would be fun to have the leaves hang off the sides.  Of course, when I was quilting the background I found puckers in the back.  Thankfully they were on the other side of the flower.  This measures 16 x 9 1/2.  Linking up to Project Quilting 8.2 Carolina Lily  and Crazy Mom Quilts.
