la petite fleur

I saw this wee pattern in The Better Homes & Gardens Special Interest Publications, Quilting Magazine, it was done all by hand & in wool, one of my favourite sewing techniques  & a change from the machine piecing of the Garden Party Quilt. It feels like spring working with flowers rather than snowmen...must stay focused on the embroidery project A to Zzzz too!
It is quite small but effective, measures 8 1/2'', each circle is just under 3''.

Pretty in pink & blue, the centers are French knots
I purchased a quilting book this weekend  from The Great Canadian Superstore, it was from France, called Quiltmania The Quilt magazine it has some different ideas...must stay focused on tasks at hand!
