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.
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.
As would this clematis....
when you compare it to my block.
More photos of flowers include....
I don't have applique blocks for any of these flowers. Which one should I make first? Let me know in the comments below!
