Wow, I am amazed myself how well the seams fit in this block. As with most of the farmer’s wife blocks, I paper pieced this one, too. But still, there are seams that have to be done after the paper piecing, and those are always a source of errors and vexation. But with this one, everything went smoothly.

Deciding on the prints was not difficult, either. A plaid for the flower pot, some green for the lower part of the bouquet, and some tourquois for the flowers. And to keep it from being too abstract, I used a flower print as background. Very clever!

I had several “flowery” blocks so far, one very similar to this: Flower Pot. Oooh, I almost used the same prints—the same colours anyway!
