Free Motion Rosehips on Red
For the free motion sampler quilt that I am making, I decided to have another go at the rosehips design, this time on red. The colours on the photos are far from accurate - poor daylight, flash a bit harsh etc etc - and in real life the thread is not nearly so pale. I have had to do some serious tinkering with the pictures editor on the computer so you can at least see what is there.
These rosehips are a delight to do, much easier than some of the designs that I have done that might look less complicated. and red seems the most appropriate colour for them.
I especially enjoy doing the thorns - they add a touch of realism - and also help fill in little gaps here and there.
