A few weeks ago we went up to the North Shore of Lake Superior here in Minnesota. It was gorgeous and lovely as always. These gorgeous fuchsia flowers were growing in a pot outside one of the restaurants we stopped at. I'm not sure I've ever noticed this particular flower before. They are stunningly gorgeous and would make a great applique flower if I can figure out what to do with all the folds they seem to have!
Earlier in the week I was in another restaurant locally and there was a great piece of wall art. I can see this being done with English paper piecing!
