Also called “Bellflower” this week’s flower is common across Europe, also found in North America. There are many varieties, one of which is Canterbury Bells. Now that is one I have heard of!
To get the bell shape I started with the hexagon.
A dart was stitched and then opened flat. This time, there were precise measurements for the stitching points . . . those are the kind of instructions I like!
A couple of folds and then a gathering stitch across the top. Stitching through all those layers of fabric was the hardest part of this flower!
The leaves were made simply by gathering a length of ribbon.
And a small pearl finished off each of the flowers.
Here they are all finished! You may notice that one of them is “inside-out”. Ahem. Apparently my spatial visualization skills are not as good as they used to be! But it serves as a bit of contrast to give interest. Right! That’s what I’ll tell anyone who asks. LOL!
And here we have the summer panel so far. Half way! I hope you are enjoying this series. I sure am!
