|Garden Gate page 28|
I decided to use the first one I found. Garden Gate page 28---- it was a lovely view of a front entrance garden of white tulips planted in mass. It was easy to zero in on one white tulip but what else?
I liked the contrast of the deep green plantings against the cedar shake and faded brick of the house. Looking closer I noticed the weathered blue shutters. So I drew inspiration from the subject as well as the colors.
To the stash closet and there I found the fabric to use for the background that closely resembled the soft colors of the house.
The background is pieced with strips of varying widths. The tulip and leaves are machine appliqued. Very simple, very white.....thus the name is Simply White. Sometimes less is more.
This mini banner is 12" by 14".
I liked that the challenge topic was different take on what we would normally get. And thankfully, we were not sent to the hardware store or grocery for inspiration! There should be great variety in the entries for this challenge. To view all the entries on Flickr Group, click here.
One more place to look for inspiration....... Happy stitching.
