I had been toying with the idea of cutting shapes out of strip-pieced selvage units. Flowers are easy. How about a flower pot, too? Then I went a step further, drew a circle on my base fabric and pieced the selvages around in a circle for my flower.
Next, I went in search of a background fabric. I decided to use a light piece so there is room for some embellishment (maybe some stencilling?) The orange at the bottom was just trimmed from the backing of that quilt that I "should" be binding. It's past bed-time, so I'll have to stop for tonight, but this is what I have so far.
