Introduction from the Author

Flower - I love them!!

I think one of the reasons I love flowers is that I lived for the first 25 years of my life in The Netherlands - the land of tulips. I recall as a child my excitement when I would find the first flowers in bloom each spring, often crocuses peeking through a layer of snow. Even now I experience a twinge of homesickness when I see pictures of the tulip field and the stunning display of flowers in Keukenhof -the largest display of bulb flowers in the world. The tulip fields that extend for mile after mile with alternating strips of colors look like the world's largest flower quilt.

The range of colors and shapes of flowers is so great that I had more subjects for patterns than I could possible hope to design. One of the more enjoyable aspects of designing patterns for this book was poring over the hundreds of flower pictures and finding those special ones that I wanted to feature.

I believe God created the vast array of flowers to provide beautiful exclamation points in His creation. I hope I can help you capture some of that beauty through these patterns and that you will enjoy creating your own floral fantasies!

Lennie Honcoop About the Author

Lennie Honcoop is popular teacher of quilt classes and an enthusiastic host of retreats and cruises. She has won numerous awards for her quilts, including several first places at the California State Fair.

In the 1990s she began a custom quilting business, and over the decade she has quilted hundreds of quilts for others, as well as being a dealer for Nolting quilting machines. Her business name, Dutch Quilter, reflects her heritage—she was born in The Netherlands and lived there until she immigrated to the United States in 1971.

Lennie is a pioneer in the use of Hot Ribbon to embellish applique and is now the leading international authority on the technique. In 2005 she published Oregon Coast Lighthouses, a book of applique designs.

Lennie lives in Elk Grove, California, with her husband Gary and the two youngest of their seven children.
