Cineraria #1. No, this isn't mine, though I wish it were. This is by a former student of mine, William Steck, who has gone far beyond me! We're both big fans of Ruth McDowell; he took a class from me on Ruth's methods and went on to take classes from Ruth. I'd say he needs no more classes! This is just beautiful and seems to explode off the page. Note the fractured inner border and the quilted centers of the flowers in the following detail. Bill said he did the stitching when he couldn't find the fabric he wanted for the cetners. Beautifully done!
Cineraria #1 Detail. I love the fabrics Bill used!
