I spent a little time after work making this flower block just to see how difficult it was. I make quite a few practice blocks to see if the pattern is something I want to make in multiple.
I made a few errors in the stem. It is so difficult to determine what the color should be when the pattern does not indicate such!
Although this one is not something I want to pursue, it won't go to waste. I added borders to make it nice and large so I can toss it on the counter to set down a hot cookie sheet, etc. I hate when I have a big sheet pan and a dinky pot holder to set it on. This will work great.
I used a double layer of terry cloth on the back side so it's nice and thick and will also wash up nicely.
I have quite a collection of these one block wonders.
I store them in the drawer under the stove
where they are handy to grab, and I really do use them all the time.
