Sunflower: Botanical Series


Sunflower: Botanical Series is the third, and possibly, final addition to this particular series. I have spent considerable time in the study of three types of raw edge applique'. The challenge of this particular system is working improvasationally. That is, to compose as you go. However, this may be my strength, as I found it to be intuitive. The next challenge is the enormous quantity of thread involved in the process. The reward is an impressionistic style of unity and blending of fabrics. I would like to give credit to Candace Kenyon Dove for her development of this style and for sharing her talents with her classes.
