I always thought Cyclamen plants made wonderful mother's day gifts. I even received one once. I have to admit, they do need some extra special love and attention and I'm not so good at giving that to real plants so textile ones it is for me. Of course, being a mother, I felt it fitting to include a cyclamen in my collection, even if it is well past mother's day this year.

I took these photos in some gardens I was visiting a long time ago. I cannot even remember where exactly, but look at the beautiful shades of pink.

I used six shades of pink to build my flower...

... and two fabrics to make the leaves adding a touch of fabric paint to lighten up around the dark area.

My finished block looks like this.
