Flower Bed

Flower Bed: Nancy Bosomworth and Sarah Turner

Nancy amazed us one day when she brought her collection of pressed flowers–on fabric–into the workshop! Each square was filled with the rich textures and colours of real flowers from her garden. She had pounded the flowers by hand with a hammer onto treated muslin. We all oohed and awed while Nancy smiled. Since her work was just sitting in a box and she hadn’t gotten around to sewing them together herself, Nancy donated all the squares to the Community Quilt Project. She is thrilled to see these squares sewn up into quilts.
