Scrappy blooms

As the weather turns here in Winnipeg
(we went from a high of 31 degrees Celsius on Wednesday to cool, windy, and rainy yesterday)
 I've been growing some flowers in my sewing room
Here are some buds, started in the centre with tiny scrap triangles
and built on each side with narrow strips of 1 to 1 1/2 inches wide

Here is the full-blown blossom, started in the middle with a small half square triangle,
and built half log cabin block style

some scrappy leaves.
the two at the left were each cut in half and a stem inserted

The buds and the flower.
I've been playing with these on a b/w background.
Stay tuned.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian readers.

These are wonderful! I especially like the leaves. It'll be fun to see what you do with them. Looks like a good way to brighten up the fall weather. Maybe I'll try it.

I'm so intrigued by these blocks. Do you have a pattern? Or a plan for these? Or will they just evolve? I really like the way you did the leaves. How big are they??
