"Sheethalshiv, you have taken a lovely quilting technique to new heights with your beautiful pillow cover. The colours you used are lovely. Did you machine stitch the "petals" down? I have never thought to do that, always…"
Thank you for your comment on my yellow 3-d rose. At the risk of possibly sounding a tad immodest, I agree with you, that particular study represents the most advanced technique I have tried thus far. It was not as fiddly as it looks. Ending the thread has always been a problem for me on these types of works, but this time I finally worked out how they probably dealt with them.
Thank you for your kindness! I am really looking forward to getting to know more stitchers, and hopefully become more adept at trying new stitches. I mostly stitch for myself... aside from the frustrations of knotted threads, I find it very relaxing! lol
