The yellow patchwork background is a sample which I used during my appearance on thequiltshow.com. I chose an ombre sheer fabric for the round purple vase, with 3 coneflowers, one is drooping down onto the table top.
The flowers are embroidered with pink thread and shaded with purple. The quilting is done with a variegated yellow thread over the entire background with an occasional flaming spiral pattern for interest. The binding is a commercial gold print.
Some of my viewers might recognize the vase, which can also be found in my quilt named Ginkgoes Galore. The following is a poem I wrote!
Ode to My Purple Vase By Ann Fahl (c)Dec 22, 2010
Oh, you are such a wonderful purple
But my new vase looks like a urinal.
Your glass is both rippled and clear
With a price of five dollars you're hardly premier.
Add a flower, you totally transform
Into an object whose color both cool and warm.
With embroidered flowers and curly green leaves
You are a sight that's so sure to please!
The big pink flowers and fabrics scrappy
You are a sight that makes me ever so happy.
With thread covered flowers and leaves at your base
You have now read my Ode to this little vase!
