New Flower Block Possibilities

Tags: applique, dahlia, flower, pattern

I was visiting my daughter recently and we took time out to be chaperoned around a friend's garden which was a great chance for me to snap shot some interesting flower possibilities for new blocks. 

At this time of year there are plenty of dahlias flower.... look at all the wonderful colors, shapes and sizes.

Dahlia flower - bright pinkDahlia flower - orange/pinkDahlia flower - redDahlia flower - white with various sized petalsDahlia flower - spikey shaped petals with white and pink petalsDahlia flower - spikey shaped petals in deep pinkDahlia flower - dinner plate sized in pinkDahlia flower - tiny pink round flower

However, I already have a dahlia block and even though it is a different color chances are I probably won't make another.... well not at this time anyway.

Now even though I have a rose block (and several rose quilts), I do love this rose with it's simple petal structure and color....

Did you see the bee in the center? This would make quite a different rose block to my original.
