Agapanthus is a flower you see around in a lot of places. They are also know as African lilies and Liles of the Nile. I see them a lot in New Zealand yet these photos were taken while visiting Temecula in Southern California.
Here is a closer view of the flower.
When I made this block I used hand dyed fabrics for these flowers... however I was having difficulty finding just the right blue-purple shade hence I used various purple shaded batik for the petals around the edges to help create dimension.
I used stitching to highlight the lines in each of the front flowers after using my favorite soft-edge applique technique to stitch them in place.
And my finished block ended up like this.
This Agapanthus block is one of over 60 flower blocks and available as a pattern. You can download it here: Agapanthus Block Download
