Fireweed is a plant and around these parts it’s known as rosebay willow herb, it is described as being a pioneer of the plant world, one of the first plants to colonise a patch of bare soil. A real tough but pretty plant.
It is also the name of a Dear Jane block which I have been struggling with for a couple of days. Not sure if it’s just me but I have found this block to be like the plant -tough but pretty!
M3 Fireweed Flower – I started by foundation piecing, failed miserably, then started again this time English Paper Piecing and with a bit of reverse appliqué thrown into the mix (the white border was appliquéd on top of the central ‘flower’). I’m so happy that it is done.
I need to find an easy block to do next!
Until next time,
