Better Than Nothing


Since spring seems to be so slow in getting here this year, I decided to keep going with making some virtual flowers from fabric. (There were a few in my previous post, if you remember.)

I decided to make myself a new guild name tag, using a folded flower pattern from this book...


I may try to machine embroider the name of my guild (Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild) on the name tag as well, but it may wait a while because I'm not sure how much I like the font. I may play around with the fonts on my computer first and then print the label on another piece of fabric. And make another flower, but that wasn't too hard once I got the hang of it.

Great name tag!! I have that same book. I had purchased it when it first came out because I think the technique is so intriguing. Although I have yet to make a flower.

I love those folded flowers. It makes such a great name badge.

I had to have that book and bought it years ago and I have done nothing but look at it since and never made anything!

I am impressed with that five-petaled mountain laurel. This looks like a lot of fun.

I saw a beautiful and colorful quilt made with these same flowers on the book cover at a Quilt Show in 2004 and have wanted the book every since,I still do not know how they are made.
Maybe someday I can afford the book !
I love all your work .
