Learn how to combine existing patchwork pieces and fussy cut floral fabrics to create stunning floral bouquet blocks.

Definitely worth viewing again and again to try to incorporate all her ideas and her way of looking at fabric and design. Very inspirational. There’s a lot to learn from her unconventional color sense and her improvisational arrangement of blocks
