Working with black is very unusual for me. Inspired by a bouquet of daisies and red roses from her garden, my sister Nina convinced me to make a flower sphere in these color. And since we had to use white for the flowers, we had to work with a dark background and she chose black.
She wanted black so it was her job to transfer the design from paper to fabric! She chose the colors for the flowers and then we made the applique pieces.
This is the smallest design of my pattern, it measures 15”.
The fabric is from the Fossil fern collection, as in this quilt.
Now I have a dilemma! Nina wants black thread for quilting on the black background. I would like white or red or green. What would you choose?
I think I need glasses to quilt black on black!
