These are the pics of the bottlebrush study. I used loops of rayon thread for the emerging flower stamens, wrapping the thread round a paint brush handle. Then I slid it off and carefully machine stitched it before it unravelled. The background it a free machine quilting design from Dijanne Cevaal's booklet. She has some useful ideas when it comes to filling in backgrounds. More flower studies to come. I'm really enjoying these.
