Bright & pale blue tulips woven with gold & silver on a blue ground with small white dots. Metallic oil & chalk. © Su Schaefer 2014.
The same design is also available reversed 180 degrees 'Blue tulips woven with gold and silver'. Related designs are 'Tulips woven with gold and silver' - pale blue tulips on a bright red ground, and 'Aged tulips with gold and silver' - darker blue tulips on a worn and 'aged' dark red ground.
Apparently, at certain times, the Sultans in the Ottoman empire banned the manufacture of textiles like this, as they used so much gold and silver thread that they drained the empire's precious metal reserves.

Thanks very much Mia!
a very elegant design, Su ! very beautiful ! :)
Thanks again Moira - and you'll have to thank Spoonflower's Art Dept, and Caroline, Art Director, for the handbag as that was one of their special touches!
Gosh this is pretty and I love that handbag too!
Belated thanks for that feedback Magenta - helpful to know!
That's how I first noticed it, to be honest as I'm not on Spoonflower much! Absolutely stunning work and fabulous to be recognised in that way too. Massive well done! :)

Thanks a bunch for all your great comments Sylvie, Penny, Phoebe and Magenta - it's been great having this design on the SF front page... I will miss it!
Interesting history and congrats on having this on the homepage!!!
Congratulations Su, looks fantastic!!
I immediately recognized your design on home page !.....Congrats !
Thanks so much to all who like blue tulips - Alex and Ceri, you know who you are!! And Joan for your nice comment - I am perking up; I think being home - even if it is still full of unpacked boxes from our move - has really cheered me up, so thanks again everyone for nice comments and feedback!
Looks great as that header image! Congratulations! Sounds like you are perking up a bit. Hope the knee and hand are better soon.
Beautiful design (love the blue for tulips!!) congrats on the feature and hope that arm heals soon! Hugs, Ax
Oh Su you've been in the wars? Hope you're ok. I've loved seeing your beautiful BLUE tulips on the home page. They look so wonderful as wallpaper! Wishing your arm a speedy recovery. Is it your designing arm? Hope not. x
Thanks everyone for all your great comments on seeing this as the feature design on the Spoonflower front welcome page! I really appreciate yr time to leave a note here. For those who wonder, not a single sale has resulted (so far) - i think my husband puts his finger on it when he says "tulips are red". And pls excuse my weird typing as i only have one working hand so far, the other is wearing a v. fetching powder blue cast - waterproof so can now wash my hair myself, wonderful!
So glad this is getting the attention it deserves! Beautiful!!
Congratulations again Su. A winner!
Wow Su - the wallpaper display is fantastically beautiful. Super congrats on the placment!
Your beautiful design looks wonderful printed on the wallpaper, Su! Congratulations on having your work showcased on the SF front page!!!:-)
Wow Su that looks spectacular on the front page!!! Congratulations!
Congratulations on making the Spoonflower front welcome page! I just swa it there a few minutes ago, and said, "Wow! That's Su's beautiful tulips!"
Stunning! Absolutely worthy of the spotlight it has received! Congratulations Su! Such a beautiful design, and such stunning colours!
What a beautiful wallpaper, Su!
Thanks very much Cal, Maria, Penney and Amy for your lovely comments! Cal I would love to see it in a castle! (dream on...) Penney your comparison to a hand painted page in a Book of Hours has just made my morning - such a lovely thing to say, thank you again! Thank you all again!
So fantastic as wallpaper, Su!!!!
Beautiful, I can see this as a hand painted page in a Book of Hours. This design has a perfect balance of simplicity and detail. Looks great as wallpaper too.
I see I'm hardly the first one to spot your wallpaper shot. Congrats! This design is one of my favorites! Although I love the Spoonflower photo I think this one would show even better in a really elegant setting......... a livingroom or....a castle!
Woooo hooo indeed! Thanks for the "ooo"s Vo!
Woooooo hoooo Su!
Thanks so much Tina and Caroline: I am still feeling over the moon - you can probably feel me smiling as I write this!
So gorgeous! I love those wallpaper shots! The blues and golds are beautiful!
Thank you so much Shirley, Joan, Lisa and Lori for your lovely comments and feedback. I think it's funny-ironic that this design, the idea for which was a remnant of fabric from the Ottoman Court Weavers has made it all the way into the modern age as peel and stick wallpaper... I'm sure this says something but I'm not quite sure what.
Another nice picture of 'Blue tulips tapestry' from the Spoonflower Art Dept.

Blue tulip tapestry by Su_G :
It looks great on the new peel and stick wallpaper. Such lovely details and the blues are soooo pretty!
I think Spoonflower's Art Dept did a great job showing this design off on the new Peel and Stick woven Wallpaper. It was wonderful to have this design as one of those selected for the special treatment! Thanks to everyone!
Does up as a terrific wallpaper!
Wow!!! Looks so great in the kitchen shot. You are famous once again- congrats on YOUR recognition. Your description was appreciated -so informative.
Thanks so much Amy and Elizabeth! This is one of my personal faves.
I love the colors and textures of this design!
