Selenite Clematis And A Few More Drawings

Stained Glass Selenite Clematis Flower Quilt Pattern | Whims And Fancies

Selenite Clematis pattern on Etsy

I continue to sew the blocks for my stained glass flower quilt using the Downton Abbey fabrics.  I was looking up different varieties of dogwood flowers one day when I came across a picture of a four-petal white Clematis.  Right then I knew I had my next flower quilt pattern.

I wasn’t very sure about using the black fabric for the flower, but I really like it.  As I mentioned before, I am naming these flower patterns after my favourite minerals since these flowers look like they are made of crystal.  This one is named after the mineral Selenite, a simple but beautiful mineral.  


Selenite Clematis is another fairly easy 12″ block.  It can be found on my Etsy shop.

I tried yet more new techniques on a few of these cards.  I learned so much about working with mixed media.  Thank you again for all your lovely supporting words!  I always enjoy knowing about your favourite ones.
