What a joy this Mum’s The Word wall hanging was to quilt. I feel like picking that beautiful flower!
I loaded this darling wall hanging onto my longarm and pondered what to do with it. I asked myself, “How can I bring this flat garden scene to life?” And then, I felt the warm breeze of summer and fans moving gently to cool. A petal took shape and then two. Suddenly, each petal of the flower started popping off the creamy background and behind the blossom, wind began to dance profusely. Those half-square triangles became my fans and the lovely border soon became a garden pushing that flower up towards the sun that was throwing out rays from each corner.
How can anyone not be happy looking at that? Beautiful bright pinks and lush greens with a pop of turquoise makes me feel energized and ready to go plant my garden! The great news is, spring is almost here!
The Montecito Collection will bring a lively and colorful beauty to any project you choose to create!
