More Birthday Blocks. Okay, I know I’ve said “I love this one!” about half of these birthday blocks, but I really love this one. To be honest, I almost kept it for myself. Almost.
This little Dresden flower is soooo cute!! I just love his adorable little petals, and how he seems to be happily bobbing in the soft twilight breeze.
I wanted to do something with a miniature Dresden Plate, and this whimsical flower is my own design. The petals were machine-sewed together, then everything was hand appliqued to the background.
A pineapple variation was its other half.
Meh. I think this block looks better as part of a quilt. Like this:
Back to the birthday blocks….. they are quite different, aren’t they? Ha.
They went all the way to Australia and are home now.
I’ll miss the sweet little dancing Dresden.
Definitely have to make another one, just for myself.
Peggi, your blocks always amaze and inspire me. And if you ever make another one of those dresden flowers, feel free to make an extra and send it my way — I absolutely love it!!!
