Quilting Floral Reflections 2

The last time that I shared a Floral Reflections progress report, I was considering  what to use for the background filler for the applique blocks.

My go-to filler is stippling, but I wanted to try something different.   I did think about pebbles.  I love the look of pebbling, but I thought that would be too much work.

Cindy Needham talks about sunshine and shadow.  She uses scribbling to create the shadow and emphasize the sunshine.  So I decided to try it!

Scribbling does indeed create shadow and looks great!  But, for me, on a large project, this is a slow and tedious process!

  1. It will look great when it’s done, but it’s going to take some time. And thread. Lots of thread.


  2. Oh my, Laura! This is something to behold, I think it will be just amazing, but you are going to give you patience muscle a work out!

    • Well…I sure hope it will be amazing. Go big or go home, right? Ha, ha! 🙂

      It is more like neck, shoulders and lower back muscles that are getting a workout…lots of breaks required.

  3. Oh! Boy! I hope you have plenty of thread! It does look amazing!
    We had a quiz show in the UK called Mastermind. The quiz master coined a phrase, ‘I’ve started so I’ll finish’, if the timer buzzed halfway through him reading out a question. I often hear that little phrase in my head when I find myself in the middle of an epic make!

  4. Hi Laura! Sunshine and shadow does look fab!! I can totally understand wanting to stretch yourself and not do your usual usual all the time. You have to give yourself a break and understand that something new takes time to learn and perfect. That’s okay!! As long as you’re okay with it taking longer . . . if you’re not, then it’s time to get ‘er done with old faithful. No one but you is ever going to ask, did you stipple this or did you sunshine and shadow it??!! It looks beautiful so I hope you stick with it. WOW! I’m proud of you. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. Floral Reflections started out in the 1990s. You picked it back up again about this time last year (you know way, before 2020’s pandemic was a glimmer in the new year’s eye). You challenged yourself to ‘focus’ via an on-line group. Each step of the way has taken time & thought.
    Upon first glance on the scribbles concept, I thought (I confess!) gesh, “Why?” Then I looked more closely – “Oh yeahhhhh, this is exactly the perfect ‘next step'”.
    I get it…your advise to “Start. Just Start.” (I remember that post vividly) comes with it the unspoken process of “And take the time to do it right.”
    Brava, Laura!
