Beautiful Bonsai Blossoms —

Full-size plants made into surprising miniature forms have always been intriguing.  Many of these darlings dwarfed by special methods of culture survive for lifetimes.  The twists, turns and tangles of their stems and limbs are fascinating.  The perfection of their blooms is breathtaking.  The bonsai is a symbol of Oriental culture.

Some of our most popular flowers — Hibiscus, Morning Glory, Sweet Pea, Geranium, Lilac, Bleeding Heart, Cherry Blossom, and Dahlia — have been given delightfully simple pots and an attitude generally not seen in quilting.  You'll love the fresh look of these designs.  Even more, you'll appreciate the uncomplicated appliqué.

Patterns only or complete kits of already washed fabrics are available for each of the Bonsai flowers.  So gather up your own impressions of the Far East and take a trip on the Orient Express.  Who knows what exciting combinations will evolve from your imagined journey?
