Design inspiration

Having finished the two porjects and not having even ordered the fabric for the two large appplique quilts, I am returning to a hand project that has been ongoing for a while. It is the project I take to my groups and frankly don't do much with in between so this is going to take some time!

It is called "Cornflowers in a cornfield" and is all hand sewn.
Here is a close up

The small circle in the middle is about 1/4" across.

When one is seriously challenged on the design front with lack of drawing skills, you have to invent other means of finding designs and the inspiration for this quilt was my ironing board cover. You can see the pattern of the large flower in the centre.
