What materials did you use? Leftover scraps of cotton fabric

What are you most proud of? I wanted to do something of my own on this block but I'm afraid I wasn't very original. The ground part of the picture is a carpet of violets (!) and I rather enjoyed making the two flowers and making the stems from fabric cut on the cross so that it bends. The leaves are another hexagon, cut in half.

I love your block, it made me think of a triffid having a closer look.

Oh, you did make me laugh! A triffid indeed! Didn't they have three legs? I'll have to add something!

Thank you, Tanya. You wouldn't say that if you saw the one I made this morning - I've unpicked it and consigned most of it to the scrap bag! I'll try it again tomorrow!

Yes, we all do that now and then don't we? And some of us more than others. You are very talented, I love your work.
