I am so happy with this little hummer.. That variegated silk thread is just perfect for the colors of Ritva's block. I'm just starting on the seam treatments now... I've signed up for a seams-only RR which start Sept.1 so I'm beginning to practice on this block... Please don't ask me what this flower is as it is just "smooch, smash, and scrunch.
This design was inspired by a vintage Art Nouveau tile... Oh I did put just a little batting under the hummer as I finished appliqueing it down...just a little poof!!! And the silk thread on his head is Gloriana "Cherry Tart". The bee will go into the upper right patch..
Art Nouveau is ultra-embellished... Look at any Mucha poster and there is not a single quiet spot....I just love his work and have 2 of his large posters hanging in my kitchen.
