African Violets



The August Block Lotto features these great African Violet inspired blocks - on a black background, with the flowers in any shade you can find in an African Violet. They are really quick to do and as a bonus, the instructions come in a variety of sizes (the lotto is making the blocks in the 8" finished size) - I might have to revisit this block as a scrapbuster later in the year... I'll probably make some more of these before the end of the month, but it's such a nice block I wanted to publicise it now so lots of people play along!

That's lovely! I fancy making some of these with a centre like a 3-d bow tie block..... Rats! I really didn't want more ideas of things to make until I'd come closer to finishing the current list! All very inspiring!

They look like fun blocks. As a kid, my mother always had African violets in our bathroom - think they liked the steam (and we were in Africa ;D )
