happy flower qal week 18

Oh am I ever happy with how this one turned out. I thought it would be a challenge to copy the scrappiness of the original here so I didn't try too hard.  Finding the "Little Ruby" print for the middle and then using a single Atsuko print for the triangles, rather than 4 different prints - made my life much easier.  I originally used an aqua stripe for the top left corner, but it just looked weird.  (At least I didn't redo the entire block LOL!)

I thought the fabrics in this original vine block were a bit ... strange? I thought it looked a bit confusing and muddly. But the joke is on me because despite my attempt to have more contrast with my prints, they are kind of smooshy too.  Sigh.  But I love the prints and it's still very pretty so it's a keeper. :)
