Flame ON!

Good morning quilters and welcome to Swan Amity Studios here in the beautiful Sonoran Desert! There are few places in the world more unique and rewarding to visit. My studio faces my lovely backyard, filled with native plants and all of the northern mountain ranges ringing our valley haven.

We love to plant torch cactus in our yard and in the summer they stun us with flowers often larger than the plant itself. Those gorgeous blossoms were part of the inspiration for my block creation. Often the blooms are so incredible they almost appear to be artificial.

Today we’re going to bebop into the studio and take a peek at how to turn your Living Flame block into a lovely 16 inch decorator pillow.
