Flowers are blooming

My flowers are growing and my technique is slowly improving.  I'll never be a master, but it is certainly good enough for me!!  I am auditioning background fabrics to see how scrappy I want to go.
I also found a cheddar that I thing goes well, a repro that has a tiny red flower on it.  There won't be a lot of this color showing (at least at this point I don't think so).  When you design as you go, sometimes your original design changes as the quilt grows.  I'm also auditioning greens.  So far I am very pleased with the way it looks.
I have been collecting pink and red fabrics for a while, but had not decided on a pattern yet, so I'm happy to be using these together.  There's more coming soon.
Until next time,
-Karen

Oh my gosh this is totally fantastic. The colors are amazing. I love that cheddar. Great work. I have to say I'm in awe of your appliqué work with the coxcombs. It looks extra hard.

You may not consider yourself a master, but your flowers are looking great from the view you've given us. Looks to me like you're creating quite a masterpiece.
Love the pink and red together!

You may not think much of your own abilities but you look like a master to me. Lovely!
