A variety of floral motifs  from the Design in a Box- Frakturs were used to create this design. The excitement comes through how I positioned each putting them on diagonals with space around them. After teaching a workshop on design and two people using the flowers to create their own runners, I felt it was time for me to do the same.  Fun to see how different each design becomes.
