Motif #14 Washington, D.C. Cherry Blossom

Georgia Seitz posted this adorable pattern designed by Anita Barry, President of my local lace guild. Great job, Anita! 

Anyone who would like to make some for the Palmetto Tat Days scholarship quilt, please use size 30 or smaller thread.  Georgia needs blossoms the size of a nickel, or less than 2 cm (or about 3/4").

This charming cherry blossom was tatted in Lizbeth®20 Pink Parade and measures 3 cm (or 1 3/16").  The inner ring is made with Hakelgarn 20 White.  It is too large for the scholarship quilt.

Darn, I will just have to keep it for myself.

Call for Strings of Josephine Rings
In related news, Georgia Seitz also needs small Josephine rings for the same fundraiser quilt project.

The Josephine rings should be tatted in size 30 to 40 -- about 8-10 half stitches in each, tatted in a string of rings with little to no space between them to use for greenery and leaves.

They will be used rather like Helma did in the green section of this photo:

Georgia also needs strings of rings with lots of picots such as Helma used in this picture:

For this she needs soft yellow colors, some in white and deepest pink or raspberry tone.
