Welcome to Provence – Part Two

Once I had the background and leaves finished, it was time to focus on the flowers.  First, I auditioned fabrics.

I had quite a big selection of fabrics to choose from, so it was easy to use a different fabric for each petal.

Next, I started adding white flowers with open petals.  I love these and I’ve been using them a lot lately.

They add a nice “variety of scale,” don’t you think?

I stitched them on with contrasting orange thread.

The inspiration photo had a lot of small flowers at the bottom left of the stairs.  I gave them an artistic nod with a variety of orange circles.

      Thanks, Marianne! It’s not my usual thing. Which I guess is the definition of a challenge, right?
