I designed this 10" block with a gardening trowel and a terracotta pot. I like to label my flowers so I added a label in the pot with the fussy cut words "Pick Violets"....hence the name. This block inspired me to begin a garden themed quilt. I've been working on block designs and have others available in my shop.
There are a couple of possible ways you could handle the label in this block. You could stamp the name of your favorite flower, herb, or vegetable. Or you can fussy cut or embroider. There are many fabrics that include the names of herbs.
When I was a little girl, I said I wanted to grow up to be a mommy and an artist. I'd like to think that I am just that! I am the mother to three wonderful children ages. I studied art and art history, worked as a museum collections curator, and am now a SAHM who enjoys expressing my creative side through quilting, sewing and fabric printing. I find time for this "during quiet time."
