This wall hanging is from the book, Remembering Adelia, by Kathleen Tracy. It's about 19" x 25" and still needs some of the appliques stitched down and to be quilted and bound (with a nice rusty brown print).
The flowers are ruched by basting the edge of a strip of fabric, pulling the thread to gather, forming it into a circle, and stitching the ends together. Small buttons will be sewn to the flower centers. I'm thinking about making another one of these too, a little smaller, and with a more floral stripe for the border.
