Nesting flower bowls - they just keep getting more beautiful
It has been flower power all the way form me this past week.
It started on Wednesday with the ladies from the Wiltshire Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Quilters in Steeple Ashton
Then on Saturday and Sunday I was at Midsomer Quilting - creating even more fabulous flowers. I think we made enough to fill a whole florists, and not only that - we can all smile and know that the future of quilting is going to continue. The age range of the people at the workshops this week spanned from age 9 to ............... well, more than 21!
I think you will agree - they all look amazing. What I love the most is that no two bowls look the same. There are so many ways they can be varied; just by changing the colour from yellow to white - a sunflower can be transformed into a daisy. By changing the thread colour the visual texture alters the flower; smoothly stitched free motion lines make a gentle, delicate flower, whereas bold embroidery stitches make for a vibrant, flashy bloom. There is lots of room to experiment and try new ideas.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the fun we all had this week.

Well now that summer seems to be well and truly over I decided it was time to get on with the flowers. I spent the week transforming my big heap of colourful fabric into a lovely collection of flowers and now have a house full!
I made some old favourites and added a new flower to the collection. I hope you like them!
