Quiltie

This month's theme for the quiltie exchange is Nature Inspired. I used the thread lace background on dyed fabric with silk leaves hand stitched using metallic thread. The flower is crocheted and attached with beads.

Where did that old saying come from 'blue and green should never be seen' when they look stunning together in this piece. Very effective Sandy.

Lovely quiltie Sandy. What is the background, it looks just like grass!
I also love your bag and all those lovely tags. I find it helps to start something to small to get me going.

I was thinking the same as Lynda about blue and green but this is very nice Sandy.

Beautiful! I've used blue and green together for years - after all, Nature has blue skies behind green trees, and I've always loved that combination :)

lots of lovely work Sandy. I've never had a problem with blue & green although I remember the saying very well.
