Tropical flowers and pyramids

I teach a floral design class on Wednesday nights.  I usually don’t remember to take a picture of the designs we make, and I never bring the flowers home but last night we worked with tropical flowers and I had to bring the design home.

The design is made with Bird of Paradise, Pink Mink Protea, Leucadendron and Gerbera (not gerber..that is baby food..correct name is Gerbera)

It was fun to make and the students did a great job!…I must remember to take my camera to class each week to get pictures of their work.

here is a closer picture

I finished another row on the thousand pyramids re-do project

I have a long way to go on this but it is an easy project to work on in small doses.  I can do a few pieces and put it down then pick it up again later without much thought of what to do next…just pick up the next piece from the stack and start sewing.

Next time I will update about the Japanese fan quilt…progress there as well.

Happy quilting

    I can’t get over how many of the triangles you’ve already pieced! At the rate you’re going, you’ll have it done in no time.i
