March Mini - Flower Power 3

 

Another little flower collage study - on a deep purple background - using just scraps I have in my little baskets.   

  


They are so fun to make... 


Layers of indigo, Japanese floral, solid, Liberty, and tenugui:  


Some Liberty, orange Tilda, a bit of kimono silk:


Thank you Wendy, The Constant Quilter, for gathering us month by month to show our mini quilts.   Everyone - Wendy has an exhibit going at the New England Quilt Museum.  See a glimpse of it  HERE.   I'm in awe of her quilts and they reflect the wonderful person Wendy IS. 


I am absolutely thoroughly enjoying cherry blossom season.  


Lunchtime selfie: 

I love the "volunteers" springing up out of the old trunks:

  5. I just love this series, the fabrics, the fun, the cheerfulness of all of them! That first photo of the cherry blossoms growing out of the tree trunk might just be inspiration for the next one?

  10. You have added another charming quilt to your collections.
    It gave me an idea - have you ever made a slash quilt? In slash quilts the raw edge is a feature, and I was thinking that if you washed and 'mishandled' a quilt made like this one, you would get another look, soft and fuzzy.
    .....
    Yes, it is a beautiful time of the year! The volunteer cherry blossoms have always fascinated me.

  12. What a sweet spring collage quilt. Love your colors. This just makes me smile! I love circle on quilts. I've been loving seeing the cherry blossom posts. The darkness of the bark with the lightness of the blossoms is so pretty.

  17. If you run out of floral prints, I have a few hundred that are crying for use. The mini is really charming. I wish Tokyo dome could organize a virtual quilt show. There is a lot of creativity taking place in all this down time.
