I love to start with a box of fabric.....my box of paints, that I selected carefully with something in mind. Either a flower, leaf, house, flange, or simply a background for an applique block. There will always be checks, stripes, and plaids in my paint box!
The colors have to play well together once they are sorted and grouped.
First one flower is born.....
Before you know it, I have a whole row of flowers and leaves. All different.....all special.....all precious.
Then come the smaller flowers gently draped across the front of a house. A beautiful block is coming to life before my eyes......and I love it. This is what I love about quilting!
