Apple Blossom is a fairy,
Swinging in a tree so airy
By and by the little sprite
Sprinkles the ground with pink and white.
Step 1: Creating a pattern from the lampshade.
Take a large enough piece of paper, and using the seam on the shade as the
starting and finishing point roll the lampshade frame over the paper,
whilst marking the edge on the paper.
Allow at least a 20 mm seam allowance
on all edges.
Step 2: Cut one piece of calico from the template just created.
This is the base for the Crazy Quilting.
Other option draw the template onto the calico
and cut out once the Crazy Quilting has been completed.
I have centred this project around the Satin Image of Apple Blossom.
Using fabrics in Dupioni Silk to complete the image.
Also the addition of Hand Dyed Laces to Enhance the Seams.
Put together a selection of threads, beads, motifs silk ribbons sequins and other embellishments
to compliment your fabrics. I have taken the theme as a fantasy theme owing to the fact that the
image is from a children's storybook by Elizabeth Gordon.
This has influenced the items I will be adding to this Quilting and allows me to delve into
a whimsical world in the Garden.
At this stage I am adding SRE to compliment some of the Saveechi Pottery Buttons.
Work still in progress. !!!!!!
