Pink Garden Progress

As promised, here are pictures of the orgami flowers along the bottom of the Pink Garden wall hanging. I used a pattern from Flower Origami by Kumiko Sudo. Coincidentally, Kumiko's books have recently been mentioned enthusiastically on the Crazy Quilt International listserve. This is the only book of hers I have. It merits the enthusiasm in my opinion. The flowers are fabic flowers and her instructions are very clear. I haven't been successful following directions for paper orgami, so I appreciate her descriptive skill a lot.
The brown flowers were purchased, made to fuse to fabric. I embellished them with beads. Getting started on this project feels great!


  1. Bobbi - hello! :-) I love your flowers and am off to search for that book (it's one I don't have). Stay warm! Hugs, Cathy K

  2. LOL! I just posted another comment asking if you had ever seen Kumiko's books ... didn't go far down enough in your blog to see you already know about her. I have all her books and LOVE them and talked about them plenty of times on CQI. She is one of my all time favorites and also has a lovely line of fabrics out.
