Art Quilts - Fabulous Flowers

Fab flower1 (left) designed from photograph by Delma O'Conner (below).  Three layers of fabric heavily quilted / stitched with variations of grey threads.  Flower is fused first then stitched over.  Final size of piece is approx A4

Close up to Fab flower1 - shows stitch detail.

Same size & manner of construction as Fab flower1 however I chickened out trying to replicate the rain drops.  I did try lots of various methods and substances but because this piece has a fine chiffon mesh over the top the substances I tried would not sit on the surface.
