About 14" high.
Background is my first ever quilt-as-you-go, cactus is four different fabrics nearly hidden by crewel yarn.
Flower is several different paint-dyed ribbons.
All from stash.
Inspiration picture, taken on my front porch in May.
Cactus flowers are so ridiculously lush and colorful; they look like they belong in the tropics instead of the desert.
The ribbon flower adds to the scrappy look!
I like how you used ribbon for the flower, it really captures the unexpectedness (is that a word?) of the cactus flowers.
Very pretty interpretation. Cactus flowers are really cool and I love how you captured them here.
The quilt as you go came out fantastic! Would have never guessed it was your first. But that flower is the scene stealer for sure!
Oh, that’s so very gorgeous! I love the texture.
