Another 5" square in my series, This one is dedicated to my mother who liked these small bunches so much...now she's suffering Alsheimer and can't remember, that's why I sewed a black knot.I drew the bunch on paper,painted the background, added some Angelina fibers with gold leaf bits. I transferrred the main lines through fabric carbon , appliquéd the violets (cut freely out of silk)and the leaves in various green fabrics (batik cotton) and free motionned everything(top+batting+ backing).I hang all my small squares on a pearl summer door curtain, so that I can change their places and see how to organize them afterwards...
