    I started this thread a long time ago http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-35471-1.htm I finally got around to playing some more and finished the blocks today. I think I'll finish the edges of the blocks and then maybe frame them as gifts or for my orchid society. I thread painted all the raw edges after fusing and had fun with them.

    Sorry about the lighting and a few stray threads. It's really overcast here in CA today.

    Thanks for all of the encouragement. I think I'll continue to do different orchids, but on darker backgrounds. If I ever make a wallhanging or lap or bed quilt, I don't want it in white.

    Very creative! They would make a great trip-tik on the wall. Your work is lovely.
