That is pretty blue fabric.
Going to be another pretty block. ....How many more to go? I've seen some in previous posts..Love how the blues are carried throughout. Will be a beautiful quilt.
you've made my day! thank you, i'm thrilled to have won your batik charms. they're just right for applique.
Your block looks good ... I'm watching for the next flower ...Sarah's linky project is amazing.
Such cheery colors! Napping under a quilt made of those blocks would insure sweet dreams, don't you think? :)
YES that is a "antirhinum" it us a native to tropical America rain forest, The higher the humidity the better, the leaves my drop if the humidity drops below 50%, these are no more difficult to grow then house plants or some Orchids. You want to keep the leaves lose shiny texture and may die if humidity drops below 50% for a few days, keep pots in a trays of moist gravel, in bathroom, or under polyethylene cover. Sponge or spray leaves several times daily. have plant in good light but not direct light, will get along in regular house temp. Growth stops at about 65 Degrees, protect form drafts, I know seems like a lot but it is worth it, Give light feeding every 4 weeks. and soil should be course, porous mix of leaf mod, sandy soil, and shredded osmunda. I think that should help you, take care and hope you get well very soon yes I had the same thing done to me also, took no time I was up and running, I trust you will be going soon, take care and Cheers angeljeanne (Jeanne)
Your block is looking wonderful!
I love the blue fabric also and bought a fat quarter at some point for my stash. Not much left now. Really enjoy seeing how you are using it. Good job on the appliqué.
Thank you for stopping by and leaving a note. It is always nice to hear from you!
