    Hopefully I have added an attachment of the quilt I flower pounded here. Sheri

    This quilt has flower pounded blocks. These were flowers from my dad's funeral and the quilt was a gift for my MOM.

    That is a very beautiful quilt and such a great way to remember your Dad. I'm sure that your Mom will treasure this quilt forever.

    Cat,
    I've been out of touch for a few days and just now catching up with all of the posts/topics. Thanks for your words of encouragement as well as the beautiful picture of your quilt. Is this the only one you have made? Have you made items to frame?

    I know I will try this technique for sure now and just hope for the same results you have had. Thanks. Suzanne

    I have made other blocks, my husband made frames for them, and they were given away as gifts. I did not take any pictures of those. Sorry.

    When I taught classes we did our poundings on a 6 X 9 piece of fabric to start with (seems to be less intimidating) and I had everyone put a 5X8 index card under to center their work. Then they filled the area to their liking, traced everything with a permanent fine point pen (Sharpie or Pigma), signed their masterpiece, cut it down to size, and then framed them. There were some awesome pieces! Sheri

    There is a site for ordering Hamiliton books using a credit card. There is more postage and handeling :D

    The flower pounding is lovely. Do you cover it with something ? sounds interesting. If pieces of the petal adhere to your fabric then what? :?:

    Absolutely AMAZING!

    OMGosh! What a way to make good use of the flowers and remember their beauty. They'll never wither away like this! What a tribute to Dad! I bet your Mom really cherishes this quilt!

    Here is the link to the directions from simply quilts:
    http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/cr_quilting_other/article/0,1789,HGTV_3305_1392411,00.html

    The basic supplies are: 2 inch masking tape, a hammer or mallet, apiece of wood or cutting board to hammer on, a pigma pen to outline with, and pdf fabric. (You can buy pdf fabric, make your own, or use the printed tresure sheets - or another brand. - If you use untreated muslin, your design will eventually fade away.)

    Have fun. Sheri

    Hi from monica

    Iam anxious to try flower pounding. I saw that there was a book list seller that had a newsletter and would like to get on the mailing list what do I do? Saw that I could get the book on Amazon for $9 with free shipping on order over $25 . Any tips on things that worked or did't work well
