Happy St. David's Day!
Finished (well, almost) in time for St. David's Day, the Welsh daffodil appliqué, a reworking of the daffodil panel on the Queen's Diamond Jubilee quilt. The leaf on the right is simpler, as planned, and the bud is a touch thinner and drooping a bit more than the original, which wasn't planned. The flower doesn't look totally right yet because the petals need to be outlined to show them radiating from the centre, but I will add that in as part of the quilting.
Also, the butterfly is missing. For the time being it will have to make do with a paper cutout. I am still debating exactly where to place it.
I had forgotten how little time these appliqués take. St. Patrick's Day is on the horizon. At this rate I should have the shamrock panel reworked by then... but I have totally run out of the right shade of green.
