Time for another Flower in a Pot! Number 7! In the picture below you can see how I test my flowers on my background fabrics. If you look at the the three pictures below you can see a few differences. The middle flower has a different red center. The left and right flowers have different small pieces at the bottom of the base. I though for sure I would like the right little piece the best, but it turns out I was wrong! I also decided on the center red for the flower because it was more interesting. I know they are subtle differences, but I like playing with fabric. Who doesn't?
I also save these extra pieces because you never know when you're going to need something later. Yes, I have bags of scraps with fusible on them, but I have let my sons use them to make their own quilts, so I'm glad I had them!
