    Here is my version of paper pieced Columbine flowers. I researched the colors online before I made them, Columbines come in all different colors. I'm pretty pleased with it although it is far from perfect. I'd like to enter it into the local quilt show in July and see how the judges feel. It was a lot of fun to do, but very tedious at times with around 100 pieces per flower. I'll make a black binding on it and hopefully that will bring out the colors and the border fabric. I hope you like it too!

    Thank you all so very much for your compliments, it's really encouraging to come on here and share when you all are so supportive! It makes me want to quilt all the more.

    I purchased the pattern from Silver Linings Quilting online and so far have used them in the doll quilt swap as the Colorado State flower. Her flowers are perfect and mine are "practice" makes perfect :-D , so I keep trying. It's the first time I've done them all together tho.

    That is amazing. So far the most complicated block I PP'd was 22 pieces; a snowflake, & I thought that was hard.

    Wow, my jaw is on the floor! Those are breathtaking. I love these flowers, they're often called 'Granny's Bonnet' over here. I have them self seeded all over the garden. And I'd say you have the colours spot on. Wonderful job! If you don't win a prize then the judges are missing a trick!
