Hand-Stitched Collage Quilts »
InstructionsI made a mistake with this project. I trimmed the block too closely, so when binding I had a choice of cutting off some of the flowers and stems or fusing the edging and ending up with a ridge. HINT TO SELF: don't use scissors when you are tired!!!!

Hand dyed cotton for background, cotton, Coton Perle, wool batting
What was your inspiration?
I really enjoyed making the first piece, so thought it would be nice to have a pair of 'flowers in vases', so this is the result.
What are you most proud of?
Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? I love learning new skills. Thank you, Laura!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I made a BIG mistake with this one. I trimmed the block too close to the flowers and leaves, which meant that the binding didn't look as good as it might have. Don't use scissors when you are tired!
