The Apple Blossom with its beautiful pink and white flowers is in fact a member of the rose family. Appearing from early May apple blossoms are larger and more robust than similar cherry blossoms. They produce a sweet scent that attracts bees and other insects. Flowering between 3 to 10 days when pollination occurs, after which time they lose their petals. They are also said to represent good fortune, hope and preference which make them a perfect subject for stained glass.
I have decided to stay with the ” Tiny Tiffany ” format of a 12-inch round panel for this Apple Blossom design. The background glass is a Uroboros fracture glass code 10-55 Cobalt Blue, White and Green. Gold pink and white, plus gold pink and purple make up the flowers and the leaves are light green with spring green highlights. This is a great project if you have lots of scrap art glass and makes a beautiful Mothers Day gift. You can display the panel in a window or placed it on a stand as shown here. The original panel size is 12 inches, ( 305 mm ) in diameter.
The stand is available here
Downloadable PDF pattern prints actual size 12-inch diameter, ( 305 mm x 305 mm ) across four pages. Instructions provided for enlarging the pattern to your required size when printing. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to print this pattern.
