This is the first in a series of designs using blocks I have drawn of unidentified flowers, based on my own not very great drawing skill. Even if I start with a real live flower from my garden I have problems getting a good likeness, so I am asking for some help to give these flowers a name. I usually start my virtual planting with some crossed designs, but often add wreaths, upright border plant, and quite a few other various styles which may, or may not, be found in traditional style quilts. Maybe while I wait for some help in identifying the plants I might add some wreaths to this project file.
Perhaps plant breeders might even be able to breed some new species for our gardens from these designs, but if I cannot identify a species which this might represent I will accept some ideas for fantasy names.
This is a spin off from my current Electric Quilt 8 project, which is to bring my collection of block designs to order in the My Library feature of the EQ program, as it is difficult to find a project file, or the resulting block collection in the library, if it has been named No 29, or Floral File 57. I might just have to share some project files if visitors to this blog win naming rights for any block series.
PS. What I have been doing with flowers I recognise is to call them by their common name if they have one, followed by a Christian name … eg. Carnation Colleen, Rose Rhonda. (Hm … I haven’t used that last one yet, so must remember that one if I find another flower which might be a rose.)
