FLORIDA FLOWERS FOR FLORIDA FOLKS!
Hopefully you are going to start your beautiful Florida flower wall hanging. The azalea is so beautiful, and such fun to make. Enlarge pattern to at least amn 8 1/2" X 11" sheet of paper. Using a light box or tape it to a glass window and trace the outline onto a selected background fabric. Then trace the pattern onto the dull side of freezer paper. See below how to do "freezer paper applique." Once you have your flower made, applique it onto your background fabric. Using wax crayons, do shading as suggested on the pattern.
Page 2 of the pattern gives you the small flower that is shown in the picture with directions as well.
***If you do not know how to print from my blog, look in the archive listed to the right of the front page of the blog and find May 10, 2010. This will tell you how to do this. If you've never done freezer paper applique and wish to applique this by hand, check my archive for January 25, 2010
Have fun with this project! Need more help? Go to Ocean Wave Quilters Guild meeting the 2nd Friday of any month at the Players Community Center in Ponte Vedra off Hwy 210 behind the Shell station. They meet at 10:00. Someone there will help you!
