Flower #1- Karey Solomon's flower [Bottom Left]
This started with Karey Solomon's idea in Tatting Times August 2010. Karey has a pattern from using up thread off of shuttles. Her Grandmother's Flower Garden tablerunner-tablecloth-bedspread is all little flowers of compatible colors fused together.
The instant I saw it I thought about my Grandma's Flower Garden quilt pattern . I wanted mine to look more like that so I used a gold color to go around the flower. This flower started with Karey's hand dyed size 20 thread. It is variegated purple, blue and green. I surrounded her little flower with 6 others then surrounded the whole circle with gold Elizabeth size 20.
