Marian sent me another picture! The blocks are from our book, Backyard Birds.
Here’s what Marian said:
These were made by me when I first moved to Africa. I learned so much, like you can have 4 different background fabrics that aren’t matchy-matchy and how soothing hand applique can be. Also, a little whimsy make like more fun. My favorite fabric is the hedgehog leaves.
I really like her background choices, and the fabrics she used around the blocks. Together, they set off the applique perfectly. Thank you, Marian, for sharing you work!
