I worked with a room full of quilters yesterday and today on a block from Passion Flowers. In a 2-day class, we get to spend one day on color and one day on applique stitching techniques. At the end of the second day, most were wishing we had a 3rd day! I know how hard it is for people to find 2 days to spend in a class but I can attest to the fact that more is better.
I love seeing the different color combintations in this sort of class. No one block is like another. the blocks I'm showing below are far enough along for you to get an idea of how the final block will look:
This is interesting. Merrie has two different colorways going. One works better on the gold background. The other will look good on a different background.
