Heidi's Schlowers by Andrea Brokenshire
As a child on a trip to Disneyland, my baby sister, Heidi, was fascinated by the singing flowers. She called them schlowers. In Mexico, I saw this beautiful Cattleya Orchid and it reminded me of Heidi's singing flowers. This is for you, Heidi Biedy Boo - I love you. Techniques: Hand-painted silk appliqué fused on a pieced batik confetti background, machine quilted, thread painted. Materials: Silk charmesuse; cotton fabrics, cotton batting, Setacolor fabric paint, Misty Fuse fusible web; cotton, rayon, and polyester thread. Original design.
