flower dough, flower sculpture...
2 of the names luci picked for her quilt
i was making a quilt w/ different Dresden plates and little ol hurricane really wanted one.
so off to jo-anns we went and picked out 20 different fat quarters: pinks, purples, reds and 1 blue.
i started cutting and setting up the "petals" last year...
just recently, she harassed by saying "mom, i dont want you to make any more quilts for my friends, i want you to finish my flower quilt"
after some ironing, i had a nice pile of the 20 different petals ready for her to "make" the flowers. she would sometimes help w/ pressing on the petal of the sewing machine.
for the past week, we would make 3 or 4 flowers in bout an hour.
after blocking them, i had her place them on the floor on where she wanted them. haha...*Homer Simpson* doh! i didnt square them off before i added the borders! so i had to go back and square them off... that's okay, the quilt's already a nice size.
i'm really excited to show the quilt guild hurriance's first quilt! yay!
