This rose was not the original inspiration for my pattern. I developed a pattern a few years ago that would resemble the look of a real rose. During August & September, I'll be teaching a workshop to my local guild, that will teach students how to create their own bouquet of roses using a specific technique to achieve the look of a blooming bouquet. Below is a photo of the pattern that I will be teaching.
It has been a lot of fun making this pattern in different color ways. I designed this pattern as a way to teach students to stretch their creativity. Like nature, bouquets can take on different looks depending on the placement of your flowers & leaves. The only limitation to this bouquet is your imagination. The following yellow roses quilt is a simpler bouquet with only leaves around the roses.
I'll post more a little later.
