What She Saw —- update

Here is how the new rose is shaping up.   Still have to finish 3 of the petals,   I like all 20 something animals hidden in it.  They are not as easy to see this time.  I also like the added animals on the sides.  I must decide on how to quilt it so I can have it done by Thursday night.   The back has been made with scraps of the front fabric and an extra red fabric I had on hand and is just waiting for me to finish the front.

What she saw in the rose garden – reworked

Okay so I was ready to quilt this.  I had added floral animals in the red side panels and was very happy with it.  I spent a few days drawing animals to quilt in the rose .  Then I decided I didn’t like the rose shape and cut it from the quilt and made all new petals except the middle elephant fabric because that was the 5″ fabric that had to be included.   Now when I look at this picture I like the rose shape.   Too late now, I’ve cut it all up and made a new one that is now ready to quilt.  Many new animals have been added.  here are some pictures of the new rose in progress.
