    I got a book recommended by Klue, Flower Origami: Fabric Flowers from Simple Shapes by Kumiko Sudo. It's fairly simple to do with clear directions. There are a bunch of applique quilt blocks made with the different flowers. Something I can use my Asian fabrics for.

    Didn't take long, a half hour maybe but, you know how you don't keep track of time when you're working with fabric. :lol: It's just fold, pin, press, a stitch or two to tack things down as you go.

    I wish I could post pictures of the blocks in the books but, I'm sure that would be a no-no. This one is called Gladiolus and it is shown on a block with 4 of them going up the stem. Many of the pictures have little pearls in the center, beads or buttons I'm not sure. Could use anything you want really.

    Sure you can see them, ESQMom. Someday I'll be over this cold!

    That is beautiful! Do you have to use a lot of starch or something to make it stand up?

    I didn't use starch because I didn't want it stiff for folding. It is two layers of fabric sewn together around the edges then turned right side out so it's thick enough to stand on its own.

    There are 6 of these in the Gladiolus quilt block, not 4 like I thought.
