Helen Hazon – Blooming

Golden blossoms

I have always loved flowers so the main theme for this design was clear to me from the start. Colour choice came next and I decided to use only 2 complementary colours – blue for the background and yellow/orange for the flowers. I wanted the colours to shade from dark to light across the quilt and to include hand embroidery for detail.

The background is a design called “blooming nine-patch” which seemed an ideal choice for this theme. The flowers are raw edge applique in cotton batik.
