Black and White Foreground Features

 Here are some more photos of the Black and White Desert piece when it was in progress.

These are the barrel cacti that I made from white corduroy. I have used a Frixion pen to mark the quilting stitching lines I will put in. I put a thin piece of batt behind the cacti to make them less see through and add some depth.
Here are the other cacti/plants during construction:

For this plant I placed black and white striped fabric over a solid white background piece. It gave the
 variation that I was looking for.
This is another cactus plant. I made it using a variety of prints layered together. These pieces were secured to the background with free motion quilting stitches. Going around each of these pieces was certainly not easy. I had to keep checking for areas that I had missed since they overlapped each other.

  1. Hey Eileen, I love seeing the progress of this quilt. The different patterns in the fabric are subtle but effective. Really give depth to the objects. Can' wait to see more ;]
