One Flower Wednesday

The flower I made today turned out quite interesting.

Using Kaffe Fassett fabrics is a real challenge but very fun.

The better part of One flower Wednesday is that I received my VERY first hexies in the Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap.  These little beauties came all the way from Pat, who lives in Northhampton, England!!  Oh, they are simply gorgeous and perfectly made!!  Pat also sent a little note on this cute little card from the British Red Cross.

The painting on the front is the Humanity Rose from an original painting by Elizabeth Cameron, who passed away in 2009 at the age of 93.  She was an amazing woman; both an entrepreneur and one of Britain's leading botanical artists.  You can check out more about Ms. Cameron HERE.

Thank you, Pat!!  I love both flowers, but I must say that the polka dot one is my very most favorite!!!  So, much so, that I just might ask Jane to change my preferences to polka dot petals surrounding a lavender or purple center!!  Oh, would that make a gorgeous quilt top or what!!

They are sweet. I agree with you on the poka dots :)

Dots are fun! And I have been thinking purple lately too. Except Linda from Stray Stitches might be forcing me to a blue and yellow kick. :)
