So pleased to see that this "standout" design (Tiffany's word, so appropriate) received 148 validated votes - always nice to see that others feel the same way: congratulations! It was a tough field with 181 designs and lots of adorable cuteness, so, given all of this, I think your very adult design did well.
Beautifully done! I think it's hard to put photos into a workable design & do justice to both: so impressive how you've done this, a lovely tribute to your grandparents, and nice to see something so different and original in this contest.
I am attracted to the dark purple-bluish flowers. Are they poppy? The patch of yellows also work very well with the main flowers. When I try it in 3 Yards preview, oh I love the soft romantic look of this fabric! Gorgeous design, Ange!
