Inspiration: As a young girl we went to my grandparents in the summer. When we cycled along cornfields we saw a lot of cornflowers. Seeing cornflowers now they remind me of long, warm summers.
This third quilt of my letter-series with fieldflowers is “Cornflower”. The composition is more or less the same like “Sunflower” and “Poppy”. I stitched the outer line of the word cornflower on the strip Velours de Panne and painted it with silver fabric paint.
I spayed a piece of blue batik with starch and cut out several petals. The petals are only stitched in the center to create a 3-dimensional effect. I did the same with the leaves. At last I added some beads and sequins.
