    No Allergy bouquet of Get Well Wishes

    I made this little hanging quilt for a lady at church with multiple health issues, that constantly lands her in the hospital.

    I just used snips of fabrics from another project, securing with some flame quilting. There are 60 beads in the flower centers. I put some grooves in the rod to hold the ribbons in place, then used a bead to pull the ribbons together. The only thing I didn't like about it, is the stems are kinda fat. Sigh.. but other than that it was fun doing this. First time I have done a 3D like this or used beads.

    That is just adorable & I don't think the stems look fat at all (fat? Try taking apeek at my thighs... LOL!). I know your friend will love, love, love this little gem just like I do!
