I cant imagine anybody not liking roses and I assume that if you have scrolled down this far you dont mind them yourself. Pierre De Ronsard are one of my favourites. Although they dont make great cutting flowers, their display each year gives me a lot of joy. Big heavy balls of pink flush the fence line with beauty each year at this time. I love the way the petals are bunched together, layer upon layer to form such heavy heads.
With that circular tight formation I have utilised the scraps from the "soul searching quilt" - well the pink, green and white ones at least, to make my own stitch and flip flower head.
As you see, I haven't as yet finished the binding - i am trying decide whether to piece more flowers from the other scraps and make a larger quilt or just make a wall hanging out of this one. What do you think?
