Big Fabric Flowers
For my booth at the AQS Virginia Beach show, I am displaying several quilts but I wanted another way to display the fabrics. After lot of research I discovered Martha Stewart's giant fabric flower. Fabric flowers would be perfect! But I needed mine to hang on a wall instead of filling a vase. So I set out to modify her instructions for my needs. My new tutorial, Big Fabric Flowers, is the result.
I'm going to make several flowers in different sizes and designs but this prototype was designed specifically to show off my Color Wheel fabrics that come in a set of 10.
Here are the 3 flowers for the Color Wheel fabrics and I love them! Color Wheel fabrics come in dark, medium and light shades so there's one flower for each pack. They will be shaped before they are hung but I'm keeping them flat for travel. I used 3 shades of gray/black for the centers.
I have more planned including a bigger one made with a Crystal and flowers of Shibori and Shades Packs.

You are a genius, Vicki! Love the flowers. Thanks for the tutorial. I just may make some for my sewing room. Still getting organized down there. You will have a "colorful" booth!

This is a great idea and will surely attract people to your booth. It also gives them other ways to use your fabric, so clearly they need to buy more. ;)

Wow! These are fantastic! Love them! I would love to see a tutorial on this. I was trying to decide which one I liked best and couldn't decide, I would like to make all three together in a wall decoration, it would be beautiful!
