    Okay ladies, so glad you are up for this one.

    Here is what is proposed I will wait until everyone has received their Blue Stars before starting this one off. So hold fire until I open the new Thread, Keep your eyes peeled, shouldn´t be long.

    There will be no rushing to finish the 12 new flower blocks and I will give a good time span for everyone to complete their blocks.

    Will go into the nitty gritty later. Really would like this to be International so all you European, NZ, Australian, USA, Canadian and all over the world are all requested to think about this one.

    Hope you are all cool with that.

    Cheers

    What would you think of us doing our State flower or for the internationals, a flower from your area? Just a thought.

    Awesome idea! The state flower sounds good except I don't know about doing 12 blocks of Rhodedendrons[sp]. Always up for a challenge though. I hate for this to end too, it was so much fun!

    The state flower sounded fine to me. Mine is the wild rose. But what about our friends who do not live in the states. Will it work for them. Just a thought.

    If you look at Roben's photo of all her blocks, my block is the second last to the right on the bottom row.

    I think I will pass on this next exchange. I just got the keys to my house today and will be spending alot of time with some renos and then moving and also a trip next month. I will sit on the the back burner for now and watch everyone else do this exchange. I can't wait to see photos!

    I still haven't received my blue/white blocks yet either, but then I'm here in Canada, so it may take a little longer.

    Cheers

    State flower is terrific idea, did think of that, just don´t know what Andalucia´s is but I am sure I could find out.

    Anyone who didn´t have a state flower could do something else or in the case of a real difficult one, what they wanted to do.

    Just found out that Spain has a National Flower so I could do that. It is a Carnation. Ofcourse i am a Scot so could do a Thistle :?

    I love the thistle...

    Our provincial flower is called blue flag, it's a purple iris, but our flower used to be the fleur de lys.
    I really like the iris!

    All this is sounding very doo able. Going to give you all 6 months to do your 12 blocks so two a month could be okay for most of us. Whatcha think

    Minnesota's state flower is the pink and white lady slipper....could be difficult to do!! I could also do the Alabama state flower (camellia) since I am originally from there, but that would be really hard too! Maybe I'll do a dogwood blossom or magnolia which are two of my favs....This is going to be fun!

    This website will tell you what your state flower is, in case you don't know, plus some history/information about your state.

    Wow another exchange? That would be awesome. I don't know if I'll be able to do a flower...it's slightly out of my realm of ability...I'll have to mull it over...I'll watch for the new thread! I can't wait for everyone to get their blocks and start posting what they've done with them!

    This was definitely really fun! :-)

    I am a newbie and have never done something like this. BUT I think I would like to try. However, you may end up with some really ugly blocks : ) I am also think the flower might be to hard for me to do as a beginner. Especially since my state flower is the Rhododendron!! Maybe I will choose the tulip instead since it is a very popular flower around here, we even have a tulip festival near where I grew up in Washington. The tulip may be easier. Any thoughts whether I should do this or not???

    gorgeous Photo. Yes some of the State flowers are difficult that is why I am going to say that you can do any state or any country if your flower is too difficult. Or you could buy some really pretty flower fabric and cut out the flowers and machine or hand sew them on. We would love to have you join in the fun because thats what it is.
