I remember Grape Hyacinth popping up in early spring as a young girl. I loved these little flowers. I am not sure if it was their color (blue being my favorite) the tiny bundle of tightly packed flowers their bell shape or the fact that they were a sure sign of spring.
Unfortunately I don't have a good photo of a Grape Hyacinth but the wikipedia has a perfect image.
In this image you can see the tiny bell shaped flowers.
For my flower block, I made the flowers all in one piece but they could be made separately too however that could be quite a fiddly job. On a larger scale it would be better.
I used the lightbox to trace through the individual flower sections and free-motion stitched each flower section to define it.
It looks like an upside down grape! I imagine this could be how it got it's name.
The flowers really came to life after I dabbed the bases on the lower sections with a little white fabric paint.
Here's how my Grape Hyacinth block finished up.
