Greetje Hein – Series#4 – Pansy 4
For my 4th quilt of the series I made again a background of different greens and purples.
On the left I used a few real pansies. I dried them for my 3th quilt, but ruined them when I ironed it. I could save three of them and used it this time. They are fused on the background and covered with silk chiffon to protect them.
I made the leaves with a semitransparent web.
For this pansy I cut the petals from pelmet Vilene. I painted the wet petals with acrylic paint. After drying I stitched with several threads and yarn on each petal.
Only the center of the pansy is attached to the background to create a 3 dimensional effect. I embellished the pansy with beads.
A few years ago I did a workshop with this technique with Ronnie de Winter.
