White quilt–pollen

Here's another block I'm working on for my white quilt. It reminds me of pollen and seedlings floating on the breeze–not sure if that's a good image, or if it just makes my nose itch! I've used scraps of old lace, bits of muslin and a very thin and worn piece of linen for the background. The yo-yos are stuffed to give the block more relief and texture.

The rest of the background will be made up of kantha, french knots and bullion stitches. That's a lot of stitching, so if it starts to look a bit stitch heavy, I'll add more snippets of lace.

  1. It is looking good so far.
    In Japanese TV commercials for hay fever remedies, pollen, illustrated by computer graphics, looks just like yours!


Comment away, I'd love to hear from you!
