Floral Inspiration


Isn't this just beautiful?  I love the combination of colors.  We can learn so much from nature.  I have not used this in a quilt but I thought everyone would enjoy seeing this unusual flower that comes from a type of succulent.

  1. OMG. I find it hard to believe that you didn't make this up. What can possibly be better than blue, purple and orange all in the same blossom?

  3. I so agree! Have you seen Bighugelabs? They allow you to upload a photo and then give all the colors/tones in it--I thought that would be so helpful for taking inspiration from photos. I'm still learning about these things but I felt I should share. :-)

  4. Barbara, do you know what kind of plant this is? I've been searching forever and can't find it!! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  5. No I do not know what it is other than it is a succulent. The flower is a lot prettier than the plant it comes from. If I happen to see it at the market again I will find out for you.
