Two flowers are done. Only 10 more to go! I'm using the English paper piecing method to make the flowers. Most of the fabrics I chose for the restored flowers are reproduction prints from the 30s and 40s. One lucky flower though gets to be made with the real deal: a vintage floral print from the 40s. One flower is made with a summer themed print (apples, bees, sunshine) and a solid burgundy, and the other is made with a 30s repro blue and pink floral and a pink solid.
I am a corporate escapee who should have escaped sooner than I did. It would have saved a lot of padded room time (just kidding!). I have always loved working with color and textures, and started in the needle arts when I was a teenager.
