The idea came suddenly. I took a wonderful Liberty fabric
- already in my stash for nearly 20 years -
and some synthetic felt
and made a sandwich, the same fabric on both sides.
With the machine I went free-hand quilting over the piece.
Next, the rotary cutter helped to create leaf shapes.
When I had enough greenery I had still left a piece to cut a long stem.
Of course the leaves and stem were whip stitched with satin stitch
and then sewn together
Do not water them

The colours are so different - the pictures were taken on our low black slate table in the living room and on the dining table und in warm light - with a dry hidrangea.
