HMQS Inspiration: Flowers

Hi again! Well today's HMQS Inspiration post is all about flowers!
Perfect post for Spring don't ya think. So here we go...
What caught my eye about this quilt was the combination of traditional EPP hexagon flowers with the wonky blocks...but I like it!

When I saw this one I thought: "Oh my I have a pile of these that still need to be sewn into rows!" But oh aren't they wonderful when all sewn together like this!
Hmmm....I need to get going on this WIP of mine.

The variety of patterns here against the scrappy, neutral backing with those prairie points as the inner border totally inspired me!

And I love the idea of using large ric-rak to add dimension to a flower:

Another blooming tree:

And I couldn't resist this story quilt from an obvious coffee lover:

Don't ya just love how BIG minky flowers can add so much to a simple charms square quilt:
FInally, I think we'd all love to have a pincushion as cute as this:
I think all the inspiration from a quilt show is wonderful.
Next week my inspiration post will be all about FMQ!
Until then, here's wishing that your days are full of Spring flowers.
