 this was a fun block.   if i made this one again, i would do the brown stems all in one piece.   because i didn't use different materials, you don't see that they are different pieces, waste of my time to do them separately.

Gini, you did such a good job on this block.  Your fabrics are perfect.  Some day you're going to have to post pics of your stash.  I bet it's incredible.

nope it's a bushy plant.  here are some pictures.  it looks a lot like a native plant here we call princess pine, whose flowers are about 1/2 inch high.

heather is a member of this plant family

Great job, Gini.  I am currently working on this one.  I am not enjoying this as much as some of the others.  I don't know whether or not to do the border they give us.  I might just sash the whole thing.  I will see how I feel at the time.

i think that the border they have will detract from my flowers on the dark background.  i'm thinking i might do some kind of scalloping around it. we'll see.

I didn't enjoy doing this one as some of the others.  I stuffed some polyster filling in the flowers to give it some pzazz - but there isn't mucb one can do, I think.
