Spring flowers

I'm lagging behind in the 52 Scrap Challenge that Anorina is hosting....

Recently she made a lovely cushion from a Dresden plate...

I cut two blades from each of my blocks ....


it was fun sewing chains of blades....


and getting them to hold hands and make a circle...


... and spread out their arms to make a star....


and cut off little bits and make sweet little mini scraps....


... and then sew them together to make a flower....


... seeing spring is just around the corner...


... did you notice the size of the dresden blades.... ?


two blades in a 2 1/2" square... too cute....

... Righto, Gotto Go... those little flowers need some more tender loving care ...

So lovely, Fiona. I am still behind - 2 projects now. But I did the first 3 in one day, so as soon as I get a bit of free time I will have to get moving, and get them done in a day.

very pretty flower, and so petite too.

I like your idea of putting a hexie in the centre of the Dresden Plate, instead of a circle.....it's different! I have also seen larger plates with pretty doileys used for the centres.
