Today we woke up to snow on the ground and high winds. At times when I looked outside I saw blizzard like conditions. Not exactly what I was expecting for the middle of April. So, I decided to head into the studio and make some flowers bloom.
I was inspired by Donna Funnell's Fabric Collage (see my last post) and by the latest issue of Quilting Arts in which Jeanelle McCall did an article on some fun flowers. I used Donna's collage background idea and her great black and white whimsical flower stems and then used Jeanelle's idea for fun flowers with black machine embroidery to make them pop.
