Flowers on Friday photographs as your inspiration.

Here are the details and rules:

You must use photographs from one of the
 five blog posts as inspiration for your entry.

  • If you use a pattern you must give credit to the pattern designer
  • There is no maximum size.
  • Your project DOES NOT have to be a 'flower' quilt - ideas: use the colours ('green' will always work with the flowers), the shapes, the proportions of the colours in the photograph.
