Alabama Studio’s use of loose thread ends protruding from a knot lends itself to the Australian Native Waratah. See the photo of the real flower on the project to see the remarkable resemblence! The red thread is a stiff linen thread (of a different grade to the seam threads) and it will keep the upright shape of the waratah stamen.
This is the project I started after I received the Studio Style book. Features inked and quilted waratah. And reverse applique waratah stem. Herringbone stitched neck and arm bindings. Variation: Used a yellow permanent marker as a drop shadow (instead of black sharpie) for outline of Waratah.
Natalie’s projects are a delight to follow. Her text encourages and nurtures. And the patterns provided (I didn’t know it came with patterns!?), talk about a fabulous fit!
Waratah is New South Wales’ State flower (my state!).
