3D flowers on small quilt

This small, breath of spring, quilt -- or quiltie -- was sent to me recently as a swap. The flowers are clemantis and are made from artificial commercial flowers. The maker said that she searched for clemantis in home decor sections of craft stores but found none so she bought magnolia, trimmed the petals and painted them for the effect she wanted. I think they're very lovely although, in fact, clemantis is not a flower I have been familiar with. So I am educated as I am charmed by the little quilt which hangs on my design wall reminding me that we get closer to spring every day.
