Floral Spray (Barbara)

I have attached my quilt top to two thin layers of flannel for stability, and I'm adding embellishments through all layers. I may add some leaves to distinguish it more clearly from the background, but this is the basic design of the floral spray at the feet of the Virgin.
The little skull beads were on a bracelet I bought in Mexico. I'm slowly incorporating them into little quilts. I really wish I'd bought more. The yellow and blue yo-yos in the picture have been stitched to form petals with a few overcast stitches.
The little angel button is reminiscent of the angel who is often depicted at the Virgin's feet. It, and most of the rose buttons, were in a bag with some cross-stitch pieces I recently got at the thrift store. The ivory satin roses were also a thrift store item. I think they came with some embroidery floss. The pearl buttons are vintage and have been in my stash awhile.

I'm making progress on the embellishment. I'm beading the Virgin's robe and aura. This is the most fun part.

I recognize a few of the elements in this quilt. I have some of that blue paisley fabric and I have a bunch of those white rose buttons, which I think came from my fabric store in the 1980s. Very cool to see them in use! I often hit the clearance section for jewelry that I can use too.

Love the YoYos--of course!!

The paisley strip is one you sent me when we swapped awhile back. I love that blue.
