Greetje Hein – Happy – Smile

What makes me happy? Music, bright colors, a smile, friendly people, flowers. To many things for one quilt. So I had to choose and I picked the smile and the flowers. That’s why I made a quilt with smiling flowers.

The background is a variegated fabric. I made a small bargello with three fabrics. The text is stamped and the flower-shadow is done with a stencil and fabricpaint.

For the flowers I used rainbow organza and a dark red one. The centre of the flowers is a yellow button.

The green flowers on the bottom are felt flowers I could not resist when I saw them and I thought I would use them one day.

So may this quilt make you happy and smile.
