Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
Type of item: Functional
Style: Classic, Traditional
Leftover scraps of cotton fabric
What was your inspiration?
The Craftsy BOM 2012 course.
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.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Let your imagination run wild - there are lots and lots of really clever ideas posted by other participants in the course.
