Flower Girls

My newsletter readers got a sneek preview of my new Flower Girl quilts but I wanted to share them here too.

Each of the little quilts (measuring 5" x 5") feature a little organza flower with a beaded centre.

I have some lovely summery colours that I am working on too.

They are for sale in my Etsy shop.

Love both of these, the colors zing for me.

Thanks for your comments Micki - and everyone, glad you like them.

Thought I would answer your question here too.

The image for the top piece is a gel transfer on to cotton and stitched to the quilt.
The second image is printed onto silk and stitched to the quilt.

Hugs, Alis

These are so lovely Alis, small is definitely beautiful. I have a question - where do you find such lovely images? Val

Thanks Val,
Glad you like them.
Thanks for asking about the images . I thought I would here too.

I get the images from various places. You have to make sure they are in the public domain if you are going to use them for sale.
These are my main sources:

Basically free but if you are going to use many images from here you are asked to pay a donation towards the bandwidth used.

She puts together some fantastic images onto CD or download sheets.
Well worth the money.

Again, great images and worth the money.

Hope that helps.
Hugs, Alis
