Favorite Flowers

Some of my favorite flowers will be appearing soon. The much maligned Dandelion! Each year when I walk up to the woods these are the first flowers that greet me as I approach. The flower heads are so bright and cheery and long ago I realized they deserved more respect. The lowly Dandelion has one of the brightest and most velvety flower heads in the natural kingdom and is a tenacious bloomer. Just because we don't like to see them growing in our pristine grass yards is no reason to hate them. The first time I made this quilt is was very large, 50" x 40" and was part of the Husquavargna Traveling Exhibit that went to Barcelona, Spain.

I now offer it as one of my fused patterns. The size of this pattern is 16" x 20". And of course in each of my patterns you also get the tiny version to make using your left over scraps. The tiny versions measure 8.5" x 11". They are precious indeed. This tiny version is made from silk scraps.
