"The border around the star received a lot of Asian-inspired floral applique. I love working with the bias strips, the curves distracts the eye from the bland tan. I was able to use flowers that are basically constructed from the same shape as the star is & then brought same green prints back in for leaves - all 85 of them. The butterflies are my personal favorite, a small feature to help define this as a garden. They were fussy cut & colored with sharpie pens to get the colors right"
