The Blooming Lotus

Flower, Bunting & Pillow Patterns

The Story Behind...

These gorgeous designs are alternative patterns from the original overlay crochet Blooming Lotus Square. They were designed in collaboration between two friends sitting on opposite sides of the earth playing the What Were You Thinking Game: Inas and Tess.  

The full sized Blooming Lotus Flower measures 22 cm across, and the small sized 11 cm. This highly textured, yet calming, design makes a perfect mandalas, doilies, buntings and appliqués. 

The Blooming Lotus Pillow is absolutely amazing for which the pattern is  coming shortly. 

Again, thank you so much for playing this game with me Inas. You are absolutely amazing and I’m so happy that I got to know you even better.  And I know that we both can’t wait to see all beautiful projects come to life so please remember to share your progress and makes with us:
