Inspired by Mother's Dahlia quilt block pattern
and cheerful fabric scraps, I began to play.
I pressed, cut,
trimmed, and flipped.
I chose a fabric from the green stem auditions.
After some applique,
extra batting in the center,
and some subtle machine stitching,
I invited a bee to come and pollinate.
Now I enjoy a new 12" square Dahlia pillow.
I found I could say things with colors and shapes
