Framed Flowers

Sew a flowery springtime wall hanging by fussy-cutting a detail from your favorite big floral print. Fabrics in rich green and red hues add plenty of texture and bright color. A bold print border serves as a modern frame. Fabrics are from the Always Blooming collection by Susy Pilgrim Waters for P&B Textiles.
