Flower Power

Today's challenge, make something lovely out of this mod black fat quarter and matching teal blue fabric I purchased a couple of weeks ago .  When I saw this fabric I had to have it  but with the amount of fabric I already have in my stash, I limited myself to a fat quarter of it and purchased at the same time a fat quarter of the matching teal tone on tone.  I knew it would make an interesting looking bowl. which it did since it has such lovely and vivid colors.  Some of the charm of the fabric I knew would be lost once it was wrapped so I felt compelled to also make a hot pad.  I was rather pleased to find a lilac scrap of fabric that also went in the mix.  I enjoy the way the flowers popped out of this particular block.  It is called antique tile.  I used up all of the mod black fat quarter and was pleased that it made a very nice size bowl (8" across and 3-1/2" deep).  All and all I think it was a good days work.
