Tutorial: fabric flowers anyone???

Every tutorial I made has a story. Do you want to know about this one?

By popular demand, let me share with you a little bit of the "behind the scenes" of FABRIC FLOWERS:

After presenting my FIRENZE BAG pattern on Houston Quilt Market last October, the little fabric roses that come on the front of the bag became "I must have that flower". Sewers loved them! BTW - THANK YOU so much for all the compliments and comments I have received from all of you!!

Not so long ago, I reserved space for an ad on Quilt Magazine. It was a whole page... and I had so many ideas in mind. Obviously, the first thing that came through my mind were fabrics; to show new collections, or to make a graphic ad- the ones my adorable assistant Angie execute beautifully. Then... came to my mind the flowers!... and voila! The problem was solved.

This is how the ad appeared on the mag:


From the moment the ad reached newsstands, I couldn't believe the amount of emails asking for the pattern of the flowers!

So because you asked for it, I love to listen to you! Here is the tutorial -sorry for the delay...

I love to take pictures of all of them together. I feel so good when I see such and explosion of color.

Hope you like them and please make many. Flood your house and your wardrobe with them... Long live the spring!!
