Two more blocks from Carol. Gorillas in the Mist is Carol's version of Rising Mist..quite appropriate naming and top use of a gorgeous fabric. Carol loves both animals and flowers and uses these extensively in her blocks. Plus her patience and/or accuracy with fussy cutting adds a zing to the blocks.
Strung Out uses one of my favourite Japanese florals. I think I used it in several of my own blocks and doesn't the blue contrast well against this colour?
