Free Motion Friday - Silk Trial Piece #3

Here's the free motion work I did on the last Silk Trial piece I did.  This one I started by stitching the stem and leaves.  Then I stitched around the flower.  Then I added a frame and the outline of the frame.  I wanted to fill the space atop the flower with something interesting so I added a spray of feathers.  Then some wiggles in the outer frame and some random spiral shapes on the inside.

The spray of feathers.

Random spiral shapes.  I was trying to do different shapes, but it's mostly triangles and rectangles.

And a closeup of the feather and leaves.  I wanted to do dense stitching in the leaves and stem so the shape would show up really well.

I hope you get to quilt today!
