Flower Power

We walked on Coronado Island this morning. There were beautiful and colorful gardens and flowers everywhere. I love flowers even though Kona (aka the cat) will inevitably chew on any that arrive in our home, they still brighten my day.

When I lecture I often talk about how there really is something for everyone in quilting and fiber art and I use these three fused flower pieces to demonstrate that in a small way…

So whether you are a solid fabric kind of person or one who likes colorful prints and embellishments, I hope you enjoy every minute of your creative life and share it with someone else… I’ll bet you’ll brighten their day too.

    Was your cat named for the fabric or the coffee? Of course I prefer your third sample, as I like the depth the thread adds.

      Not fabric or coffee – Her sister was Kia (not like the car but with a loud “i”) and together they were Kona Kai. I guess we just liked the sound of it. I agree with you about the depth the thread work adds. Now I have to decide if I do more embroidery around the flower or just quilt it (by hand or machine?).
