    I started this little pattern with the intention of adding borders to make it larger...but it starting to 'speak' to me about half way through...it didn't want to get lost amongst all those other busy blocks...so this is what it became...Rhonda you inspired me to try this, what do you think?? :D

    No pattern as such, just a pattern I resized to 2" on EQ5 and added a few extra petals to the flower as it looked too small, do a google search for foundation piecing, there is hundreds out there Teresa :D

    I'm just really jealous that you seem to accomplish so much and I accomplish so little -- but you do such beautiful stuff that I love you anyway :roll: :mrgreen: :-)

    Well now you can't say you haven't made a bookmark before! Very nice!!!I think it outshines anything I can do. I would like to try something similar but I'm not crazy about paper piecing. Yours is just really something!! and that from a miniaturist!
    I have been asked why I don't add a ribbon or tassle. I don't think they fit what I do. I like how you added the tassle. I would have never thought of that! Can't wait to see the next one!

    How did you end up closing it? I leave an opening on the side and turn my
    bookmark right side out and then sew a finish seam around the edge which catches that raw edge in the seam.
    I was curious what you did.

    I like that. So cute. I am always impressed when someone can do the miniature blocks. And you did it so well.
